Gritty and friends are coming to the Ocean City Boardwalk! The Philadelphia Flyers 2021 Community Caravan is headed for the Ocean City, Tuesday, Aug. 17 at 5 pm.

The Caravan, which is now in its fifth consecutive year, will follow last season's mobile-pep-rally-style format throughout the summer-long event series deemed the team's "Road to October." But, this is the first time the Flyers Caravan has rolled down the Ocean City Boardwalk.

The Flyers Community Caravan is set to roll down Asbury Avenue starting at Sixth Street, then heading for the Boardwalk at 14th Street.

"The Flyers Community Caravan has become a fan favorite since its inception in 2017," said Flyers Vice President of Community Relations & Government Affairs, Joe Meade.


"We are so excited to bring the Caravan back to communities throughout the region and have fun with our fans who have tirelessly supported the Flyers year after year. If you're a Flyers fan, this is the summer for you -- we've added several first-time stops on the tour and have some awesome giveaways in the works that could turn even Gritty green with envy!"

The 2021 Community Caravan will once again operate as a traveling pep rally featuring the Flyers own In-Arena Host Andrea Helfrich, Flyers Alumni, the Flyers Ice Team and -- drum roll, please -- GRITTY!

Fans attending this summer's Caravan events will also have the chance to get their hands on a lineup of exclusive Flyers-themed giveaways, including bucket hats, flip flops, sunglasses straps, tank tops, beach towels and more.
