Hershey Bears Host Red Carpet Arrival & Family Tailgate

The Hershey Bears invite fans to join them for the Red Carpet Arrival and Family Tailgate before the club's home opener on Saturday, Oct. 5. The fun starts at 3 p.m. just outside the front entrance of Giant Center.

We've taken last year's event and made it even bigger and better. The Family Tailgate will start at 3 p.m. There will be plenty of fun to be had for fans of all ages with great music, lawn games such as Jenga and cornhole, and fun from Dave & Busters! Fans may grab a drink and enjoy a bite to eat at the food trucks, including the Chick-Fil-A food truck which is scheduled to be in attendance! 

Perfect for the kids, staff members from ZooAmerica and some of their animal friends will be on hand. Fans may also stop by the photo booth to snap pictures with their favorite Hershey Characters! 

They'll be prizes given out throughout the event. Make sure to enter the grand prize drawing for a chance to win a night in Bryan Helmer's suite! The grand prize will be drawn at the end of the event. Following the Family Tailgate, all eyes will move to the red carpet. Players and coaches for the 2019-20 Hershey Bears will arrive in style, and as they walk down the red carpet, fans will have a chance to take photos and snag autographs. 

This event leads up to the club's home opener that evening at 7 p.m. versus the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. Tickets are on sale now at the Giant Center Box Office, or online via Ticketmaster.
