The Topeka RoadRunners proudly announce the schedule for the 2012 FanFest Weekend beginning Friday, August 31 and continuing through Monday, September 3. Two exhibition games, the RoadRunners Alumni Game and the annual Blue White Game highlight the festivities but are just part of an exciting weekend for both fans and players.
The FanFest kicks off on Friday at 7 pm with the RoadRunners exhibition game against the North Iowa Bulls of the NA3HL (North American Tier III Hockey League).
On Saturday, at 10 am, the RoadRunners have their morning skate followed by the Alumni morning skate at 11 am. Both are open to the public. From noon until 2 pm, fans will be able to skate the rink and mingle with some of their favorite RoadRunners. At 4 pm, the Tailgate Party gets things started in the Expocentre parking lot. At 5:15 pm, the Alumni Game begins as the legends of the franchise battle it out in Landon Arena. Then, at 7:30 pm, the Topeka RoadRunners cap the night with their second game against the North Iowa Bulls.
After three fun-filled days, the FanFest wraps up with our annual BlueWhite game on Monday at 6 pm. Admission to this intra-squad event is free.
The 2012 FanFest Weekend is your only chance to see your Topeka RoadRunners in action before the regular season begins. All seats will be general admission.
