The Arizona Rattlers will host Fan Fest in downtown Phoenix with an array of activities and entertainment on March 1.

The event will run from noon to 3 p.m. on Jackson Street between 1st and 3rd Street.

Fan Fest is a free, family-friendly event that will kick off the start to the Rattlers’ 2014 Arena Football League (AFL) season and the first 300 fans to arrive will receive a free limited edition T-shirt.

The block-party style event will feature raffle prizes, inflatables, dance performances by both the AZ Sidewinders and local dance studios, football demonstrations, and youth football scrimmages. Food by Coach’s Corner will be available for purchase.

The AZ Sidewinders, 2013 AFL Dance Team of the Year, will start the festivities with a performance at noon. Mascot Stryker will also be on-site to play with kids and take photos.
