ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - The 2010 edition of the "Knights Tour" will make its way to Orlando later this month, with a fan-fest style event planned for May 22 in Winter Park. The Winter Park Knights Tour event will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Central Park, conveniently located on Park Avenue in the heart of the downtown shopping district.
All UCF students, alumni, fans and supporters are invited to attend to meet several of the Knights' coaches and student-athletes. Families are encouraged to attend the event as kids will have the opportunity to get autographs and participate in interactive games with their favorite Knights from UCF's football, basketball, soccer, volleyball and cheerleading squads.
Hear about the upcoming season from football coach George O'Leary, men's basketball coach Donnie Jones, women's basketball coach Joi Williams, volleyball coach Todd Dagenais, women's soccer coach Amanda Cromwell and more in live Q&A discussions on the main stage. Along with the Marching Knights, representatives from the UCF Athletics ticket office, Golden Knights Club and Alumni Association will also be set-up to discuss plans for the 2010-11 year.
Central Park is the crown jewel of all the parks in Winter Park. Its beautiful fountains, landscaped planters, oak tree canopy, rose garden and west meadow are an attraction for thousands annually and will serve as a beautiful backdrop to this very special Knights Tour stop.
