The festivities begin at the Wichita Ice Center at 505 W. Maple Street, where from 12-4 p.m., there will be all kinds of fun for the family. Inflatables, courtesy of Big Sky Inflatables, will be on hand as well as face painting, a balloon artist and DJ Malik spinning the party jams and good outdoor music.

From 1-4 p.m., fans that have a ticket to Game Two will receive FREE ice skating and skate rental. Fans are also encouraged to bring a canned good to donate to the Red Cross for Tornado Relief. Outside will be Food trucks from The Flying Stove, B.S. Sandwich Press and MMM… Sandwiches, with a portion of their proceeds benefitting the Tornado Relief Fund as well.

To top it all off, fans are encouraged to bring grills and tailgate in the parking lot of the Wichita Ice Center. This is the first time the Thunder have appeared in the Finals since 1997-98 and everyone is revved up to bring the Championship back to the Air Capital.
