Denver Nuggets Downtown Playoff Hoops Fest

Denver – The Denver Nuggets and Downtown Denver Partnership, in cooperation with the Denver Parks and Recreation Department, are happy to announce the first Downtown Denver Playoff Hoops Fest at Skyline Park.

The event was intended to tip-off with a special Playoff Rally during the lunch hour on April 18 featuring Nuggets players, SuperMascot Rocky, Nuggets Dancers, and Community Ambassadors. The Playoff Rally has been postponed due to weather and will be rescheduled in the next 2 weeks. The Nuggets will host several basketball-related activities over several days now starting on Saturday, April 20th. Activities will include a 3-point shootout, skills challenge, an attempt at the world’s largest game of knockout, a Denver Celebrity Game, a health and fitness day, and open court time where members of the community are invited to come down to the park and sign up to play on the court.

The Nuggets outdoor sport court is a replica of the Nuggets floor at Pepsi Center constructed by Sport Court of The Rockies and is proudly sponsored by Southwest Airlines. A full schedule of events at the Downtown Playoff Hoops Fest can be found below. Skyline Park is located at the intersection of Arapahoe and the 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver. The court installation at the park was headed up by Tech Western. The Denver Nuggets have qualified for the NBA Playoffs each of the past 10 seasons and are nearing their franchise record for most wins in season and most wins at home in a single season. Nuggets first-round playoff tickets are now available at Nuggets.com or by calling 303.53.HORSE. The 2013 Nuggets Playoffs are presented by Honey Smoked Fish Company.
