SPOKANE, Wash. – The Spokane Chiefs have announced that Saturday’s Leinenkugel’s HOCKtoberfest festivities will be moved indoors due to weather concerns. The event will still be open to all fans and include food, drinks and fun activities.
“With growing weather concerns, including wind and rain in the forecast, we want to ensure fans a warm, fun experience at HOCKtoberfest,” said Chiefs’ Vice President of Sponsorships, Jay Stewart.
Leinenkugel’s HOCKtoberfest will open at 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 15 prior to the Chiefs’ game versus the Portland Winterhawks. As the event will now be located inside in the Integra Telecom Room at the Arena, fans are encouraged to enter through the VIP/suite entrance on the northwest corner of the building.
Spokane returns home on Friday, October 14 for a contest against the Everett Silvertips. It will be Dairy For Life Night at Spokane Arena as fans will be able to take part in a special raffle benefiting
Dairy For Life and Second Harvest Inland Northwest to provide dairy products for families in need. Prizes include authentic jerseys and signed memorabilia.
Saturday night’s game – following Leinenkugel’s HOCKtoberfest – against Portland will also mark the first live television broadcast of the season. Watch on SWX on Comcast channel 112 (HD) or over-the-air channel 6.2.
