The Canes Summer Fun Fest will be fans’ first chance to view available seat locations for the 2010-11 season, which will kick off in October. Fans will have the opportunity to roam the RBC Center and pick out seats for full season ticket packages and 26-game plans.

The event will feature the Hot N’ Cold Eating Extravaganza, with the winner taking home two 12-game plans for the 2010-11 season.  The Extravaganza will challenge participants to see who can eat a barbeque sandwich and ice cream sandwich the quickest. Participation is limited and there is a $5 entry fee with proceeds going to the Kids ‘N Community Foundation.  Participants will compete in sub heats with the winners chowing down on the main stage at 7:45 p.m.  The overall winner will take home the tickets.
