Catch the fever…. and celebrate!
As the Indiana Fever franchise has grown through its first 18 seasons, so, too, has its preseason celebration with fans. On Thursday, May 10, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., the Fever will conduct their annual Tipoff Party – open FREE to the general public as a new springtime version of the Indiana Pacers’ annual FanJam event. Kids 14 and under receive a FREE hot dog, chips and soft drink!
Making its debut prior to the Fever’s 19th season will be the Family Fun Zone presented by Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent. An interactive, 6,000-square foot space dedicated to kids, families and fun, the Family Fun Zone takes the place of four lower-level seating sections along the north end of the Bankers Life Fieldhouse playing floor. On game nights, the Family Fun Zone is open to all ticket types from the time doors are open until tipoff, and again at halftime.
Each night during the summer season, the Family Fun Zone will include large inflatables and entertainers on a mini-basketball court that includes a space for dribbling drills and a goal for shooting. Inflatables include a large slide, basketball tic-tac-toe and skee-ball. Entertainers each night will include face-painters and caricaturists. Also available in the Family Fun Zone is a concessions and merchandise area.
The Tipoff Party starts at 5:00 p.m., during the final hour of a preseason Fever practice. Fans can watch practice or participate in the Family Fun Zone with food, drink and team merchandise. At 6 p.m., a formal program begins with a highlight video on the arena scoreboard, introduction of the new team of Fever players and interactive games with players and fans teamed together. Prizes are available to fans throughout the event.
