Amway Center - Fernando Medina - Orlando Magic
The Magic have pulled out all the stops for their 2012 home opener, announcing these special plans for the occasion.
According to the Magic, the first 5000 fans to arrive at Amway Center for Friday's game will receive t-shirts and Rally Rackets emblazoned with the phrase "We Will," which slogan is new for the 2012/13 season.
In addition, a Fan Fest is scheduled to start at 5 PM on Church Street. The Fan Fest will feature live music from Run for Cover, as well as inflatable games, face-painting, and balloon art.
On the concourse level of Amway Center, Magic fans will find face-painting, balloon art, a photo booth, and magicians. A caricature artist will be stationed on the promenade level of the facility.
A juggler from Cirque du Soleil will perform at halftime. Also at halftime, the team will recognize Pat Williams, the Magic's Executive Vice President, whom the Basketball Hall of Fame honored with a lifetime achievement award in September. Williams played a key role in bringing the NBA to Orlando.
Fans who purchase the Guys Night Out ticket package will gain admission to a postgame autograph session with the Magic Dancers.
