BankUnited CanesFest is back again, which means exactly what you all have been waiting for: The 2011 college football season is right around the corner.
This year's BankUnited CanesFest will be bigger and better than ever and is going back to its roots on campus at the University of Miami from 3-6 p.m. on Saturday, August 27.
You will not want to miss this exciting event. One lucky fan will be selected to drive home in the completely customized CaneMobile pictured below:
Uh, OK...minor correction: nobody is going to win the awesome Canemobile but most fans will go home with some other really cool stuff like mini-footballs, pom-poms, posters and all kind of other orange and green goodies.
Miami Hurricane fans will enjoy the 2011 fan fest with an afternoon full of family fun. Oh and I almost forgot to mention that there will be FREE BEER for everybody who attends!
Seriously though, family fun activities will include several interactive games with student-athletes, the ever popular inflatables, tours of UM athletic facilities and a Q&A session with the Hurricane coaches.
A a special incentive to get fans to attend this year's event the first 10 fans that show up will also get to take home a Miami Hurricanes cheerleader!
Except for winning the CaneMobile. Yeah, that and the free beer of course.
And the most loyal Canes fans - season ticket holders - will receive EXCLUSIVE ACCESS to a football autograph and photograph session from 4:00-6:00 p.m. in the Knight Center.
UM Alumni and current Hurricane Club members are all encouraged to attend. As a special incentive they will have first shot at sinking UM President Donna Shalala in the popular "dunk tank" activity.
But I bet that activity would be a big hit at an event like this, don't U?
