Ice Flyers Home Game – Oct. 29

The Pensacola Ice Flyers will be taking to their home ice on Oct. 29 to play against the Huntsville Havoc. This season, all Ice Flyers home games are theme nights that get the crowd involved. This game’s theme is “Capes and Crowns,” which strives to be a stadium-wide costume contest. Fans are encouraged to come to the game decked out in their best costumes. During the intermission, the best-dressed young fans will participate in a parade around the ice.
