Party City today announced a new partnership with the Madison Square Garden. Under the terms of the agreement, Party City becomes The Garden’s “official party store.”
In celebration, Party City will sponsor a Knicks Kids Day at the Knicks vs Denver Nuggets basketball game at Madison Square Garden on December 12. Children of all ages are invited to participate in pre-game activities like face painting, video games, and crafts. Party City will award prizes throughout the game, and the “wild-n-crazy” ZOOperstars, featuring characters like Mackerel Jordan and Dennis Frogman, will provide halftime entertainment.
Members of Knicks City Kids will be on special assignment interviewing players, introducing the starting line ups, and taking photographs during the game. They will also attend the post-game press conference with Coach Mike D’Antoni.
“We are thrilled to partner with World’s Most Famous Arena,” says Lisa Laube, president of Party City. “As the leading party specialty store, no other retailer is better suited than Party City to become Madison Square Garden’s official party store. The opportunity to engage families and sport fans in-arena, as well as provide inspiration for the ultimate in-home viewing parties with our incredible selection of party supplies, is exciting for Party City.”
