Kids can enjoy the bounce houses and fans of all ages can watch a replay of the 2013 Championship Game on the video board.

Players confirmed to attend the festivities include Mike Accursi, Dan Dawson, Paul Dawson, Angus Goodleaf, Cody Jamieson, Stephen Keogh, Mike Kirk, Craig Point and Joe Walters.            
“I look forward to sharing our accomplishment with our fans and the city of Rochester. It is a day to celebrate another successful season,” said Walters.
The players will be joined by Styres, Knighthawks President Lewis Staats, VP of Player Personnel Jody Gage, VP of Lacrosse Paul Gait, Assistant GM Landon Miller, Head Coach Mike Hasen, Assistant Coach Paul Day, Public Address Announcer Jeremy Newman, Broadcaster Craig Rybczynski and front office staff.
