FREE Event – Kitchener Rangers Fan Fest Sunday Aug 31st



Kick off the 2014-15 season with fun, food and friends at the Rangers’ Fan Fest! I have been before.. a really fun time! Not only are there lots of rides and inflatables for the kiddies but you will meet the entire Ranger’s team and get autographs if you get there early enough. (around 11-12-30 is my guess) You can also see an exhibition game at The Aud starting at 2pm for only $5 each or $15 for a family. 

The Kitchener Rangers will host their annual Fan Fest and BBQ in support of the Children’s Wish Foundation on Sunday, August 31 from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm at The Aud. All the rides and inflatables are free – charity BBQ available for a cost.  

Enjoy a BBQ lunch(extra cost) , meet the Rangers players and mascots and take part in a number of activities including inflatable games and rides!
