ATLANTA, GA - The Atlanta Hawks, King of Pops and Parkmobile want to get fans excited for Opening Night of the regular season with a couple of sweet deals for the city. On Friday, Oct. 21, fans will be treated to both free parking via the Parkmobile app and get a taste of a newly created, Hawks-inspired ice pop just six days before the 7:30 p.m. tipoff at Philips Arena against the Washington Wizards.
“The energy and anticipation entering this season is off the charts. We had an exciting summer, bringing home Atlanta native and eight-time all-star Dwight Howard, and have high expectations for this season,” said Atlanta Hawks and Philips Arena CEO Steve Koonin. “We want to remind our fans and the entire city that they are an important part of the Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club, thanking them in advance for their support. We’re so glad King of Pops and Parkmobile could be a part of this kickoff!”
Popular Atlanta-based King of Pops will debut a new “Hawksicle” frozen treat in honor of the team. The pineapple-lime flavored ice pop will be officially introduced to the city at King Of Pops’ Bar and Good Grub in Ponce City Market. During the noon-hour “Hawksicle” break, fans can grab a complimentary new pop and team swag, while supplies last, as well as meet Harry the Hawk and Hawks cheerleaders.
"We love Atlanta so much, and to get to do something with the Hawks is really special. We're going to try our best to keep things interesting this season, starting with a special Hawksicle," remarked Steven Carse, CEO at King of Pops.
