Between the Pipes Episode #19: Fan Fest and Beyond
RAPID CITY, S.D. — It seems like a lifetime ago that we’ve had the opportunity to discuss hockey. But at the time of this article, the Rapid City Rush are slated to kick off their much-anticipated 2020-21 season next month.
The official kick-off for the festivities began with the 2nd Annual “Fan Fest” held at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center Ice Arena on Halloween. The event included trick-or-treating opportunities for the kids with area vendors as well as live music, the unveiling of Rapid City’s new jersey design, the signing of two new players, and other fun tidbits.
