CONDORSTOWN, Calif. – The Bakersfield Condors, ECHL affiliate of the Edmonton Oilers, announced today key early season promotional nights, including the return of Queen Victoria the Condor, for the upcoming 2013-14 season.
You simply cannot miss opening night, especially this season with an
anticipated, special encore performance from Queen Victoria, the world famous, live Condor. If you live under a rock and did not see what happened last season,click here. Last year’s event was featured on Good Morning America, The Today Show, The Soup, multiple ESPN shows, and countless other outlets.

The following night, Saturday Oct. 26, the first 2,000 kids, 12 and under, will take home One Direction standees to put on their desks, dressers, or multimedia stands. Plus, 20 lucky fans will win a life-size standee. Impress your friends with photos that will look like you met the band! Though you may not have heard of the enormously popular English boy band, we’re certain your children and grand-children have and will love to come to the game.

Kids and students of all ages will rock Condorstown and learn a
thing or two, at the annual Field Trip/Education Day game on Thursday, Nov. 14 at 10:30 a.m. The always-anticipated annual event features school-themed games, an educational booklet to take home, and a healthy lunch for the students. Reserve tickets for your class TODAY by calling 324-PUCK (7825).
