Rockford, Ill.-- A trio of bobblehead nights highlight the 2010-11 Rockford IceHogs promotions calendar.
 
The season kicks off with a fan festival starting at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 9 along Main Street between Elm and State streets. The event features food and drink samples from the Illinois Pork Producers and Pepsi along with activities for kids and a live band. The puck drops on the 2010-11 season at 4:35 p.m. against the Manitoba Moose at the Rockford MetroCentre, then after the game there’s an open skate on the ice while the Blackhawks’ ring ceremony plays on the video screen.
 
The first 5,000 fans on opening night will pick up a magnet schedule presented by the Illinois Pork Producers, U.S. Cellular, Guerilla Graffix, Dental Dimensions and WNTA 1330-AM.
