(Peterborough, ON) – The Peterborough Petes will kick off their 61st season on Thursday, September 22 at 7:05pm against the division rival Ottawa 67’s. This marks the second straight season that the 67’s have visited the PMC as part of #OHLOpeningWeek festivities. The Petes defeated Ottawa 5-4 in the 2015/16 home opener.
On Thursday, there are several special events and activities planned for fans. The annual Home Opener Party is free to fans with a ticket to the game, and will take place in the PMC parking lot from 5-6:30pm. The party will feature bouncy castles provided by Bouncers Are Us, live music from CCMA performer Jesse Slack, a free Petes temporary tattoo station, and more.
The Home Opener pre-game ceremony will include a tribute to season ticket holders, a ceremonial puck drop featuring Peterborough native and 2016 Olympic bronze medal Rugby 7s player Hannah Darling, awards presented to participants in international tournaments this summer, and a special message from Petes President Dave Pogue.
Peterborough This Week, the presenting sponsor of the Petes’ 61st season, will once again be distributing free “Go Petes Go” cheer cards to fans at Thursday’s home opener, and to their entire distribution area. Fans who share a photo with their cheer cards can win a Petes merchandise combo.
