By Jacob Withee | September 22, 2017

PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. – The Northern Arizona Suns are committed to providing the best entertainment in the NBA G League and have announced seven special theme nights for the 2017-18 season to add to it.

The NAZ Suns begin their second season in the NBA G League against the Agua Caliente Clippers at 7 p.m., but the fun begins at 5 p.m. outside of the Prescott Valley Event Center. The Suns will have a bounce house, face painting, a beer garden (purchase necessary) and much more. There will also be a live performance by local entertainer the Wes Williams Band beginning at 5:30 p.m.

The first 1,000 fans inside the arena for the home opener will receive a free NAZ Suns replica jersey courtesy of Findlay Toyota Prescott.

Just a week later, the NAZ Suns will host their second annual Breast Cancer Awareness Night, where the team will wear specialty pink jerseys. Fans are encouraged to submit names and stories of loved ones affected by cancer for a chance to see those names printed onto NAZ Suns jerseys. Jerseys will be auctioned off immediately following the game with all proceeds benefitting breast care programs around the community.

Fans can submit names here.

Also, the first 1,500 fans at the Nov. 11 game will receive pink LED thunder sticks courtesy of Yavapai Regional Medical Center.

Among the seven theme nights will be Buckets’ Birthday Celebration, a Christmas Game, an inaugural Kids Day Game and a NAZ Suns Aloha Fest.

Being introduced this season are Sunday Fun Days, a running event that will last all season long. For every home game played on a Sunday this season, the Suns will provide face painting, inflatables and postgame court access to kids. The first 500 kids in the arena will receive an autographed player photo.

March 24 marks the Suns’ season finale and will also be their first Salute to Heroes Game. The Suns will honor veterans, first responders and law enforcement from around the area with special in-game events, and the team will wear a specialty jersey. There will also be a Pace Car onsite from the race track, a monster truck, a beer garden (purchase necessary), bounce houses and face painting.
