A “Ground the Flyers” rally is planned at the Allegheny County Courthouse Courtyard downtown beginning at noon today.
Bob McLaughlin from the X Morning Show will emcee the event, and Iceburgh is expected to attend. Kardaz Brother will provide musical entertainment while Turner’s Dairy and Snyder of Berlin will be on hand to provide refreshments to attendees.
The county executive and mayor have declared Wednesday “A Great Day for Hockey,” and they are encouraging fans to show their Penguins pride by donning the team’s colors to mark the first home game in the Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Philadelphia Flyers.
They also are asking those attending the rally to bring a canned good, non-perishable food item, or cash donation for the Scouting for Food drive, which benefits the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.
The Penguins are asking fans attending Wednesday night’s game to wear white to create a “white out” at Consol Energy Center.
For those who do not have tickets, the game will be shown on the “Big Screen” in the parking lot of the Epiphany Catholic Church adjacent to Washington Place and positioned toward Fifth Avenue.
The game starts at 7:30 p.m.
