We know what you’re saying, why is a youth hockey development outfit participating in ANYTHING to do with art?
There will probably be a lot of kids around to hone their art skills with some excellent chalk drawings, so we’ll be there to offer them the opportunity to get some exercise by playing some ball hockey with us.
The Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance (SAACA) is partnering with Vestar to produce the second annual Chalk Art Festival in three venues on Saturday, April 18, 2015.
Desert Ridge Marketplace, Tempe Marketplace, and Westgate Entertainment District are simultaneously inviting the public to watch professional artists create 8 foot murals or make their own chalk addition.
Westgate will have eight professional artists working on their murals throughout the Entertainment District. Kids are invited to the “KidZone” where they’ll be able to produce their own artwork and, if they’re so inclined, take a stroll over to see what hockey is all about and get some exercise
Also of interest is the announcement of the results of the 2015 NHL Draft Lottery, where the drafting position of the Arizona Coyotes will be announced in this very important draft year. We will all be watching!
Thanks to the Arizona Coyotes Youth Hockey Development people, Desert Hockey Development will have a ball hockey rink set up at the Westgate venue, somewhere on the plaza near Gila River Arena. We will have equipment and adult direction for as many kids as can fit in the plaza that want to have some fun playing ball hockey.
Play for awhile or play all day, it’s up to you!
Hope to see you there!
