Perfect Day for Caps Fan Fest

It was an unusually cool summer day in Arlington as the Washington Capitals hosted their annual Fan Fest. We met so many great people and heard so many stories from our new friends.

Following a break from the development camp tests and drills, the prospects returned to have some fun with some kid fans on the ice.

The players were split between two rinks and each assigned a section to work with the young  hockey players. It was a chance for them to give back and remember what it was like to dream big!

During the Fan Fest, fans were given the opportunity to purchase used/new Caps player equipment.

We kind of went a little crazy–especially over Michael Latta sweatshirts and some other stuff…

Fans gathered on the eighth floor deck to shoot some pucks and take pictures with players and Red Rockers.

There were more interviews and just a lot of fun as fans and our favorite ladies mingled in the warm June sun.

The day concluded with the Caps Alumni game–more on that to come but here’s a sneak peak!

It was an exhausting day and one of the best days since the abrupt end of the season. Caps fans remain ever hopeful!!
