Here's the press release.

Fans will have their first opportunity to catch the 2011-12 Portland Trail Blazers in action when the team hosts its popular preseason tradition - the Wells Fargo Fan Fest - on Friday, Dec. 16, at the Rose Garden. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Free tickets and family passes are available at all Wells Fargo locations in Oregon and Southwest Washington. Fans will also be admitted the night of the event by showing a Wells Fargo check/credit card at any entrance. Parking will be free, subject to availability.

This year's event will be headlined by an intra-squad scrimmage at 7 p.m., which will follow an informal on-court Q&A session with the team hosted by Trail Blazers television broadcaster Mike Barrett.

Fans will also get a chance to see the performance debut of the 2011-12 BlazerDancers, and the event will include prize giveaways from Blaze the Trail Cat and the Stunt Team.

Fan Fest attendees are encouraged to bring toys to be donated as part of the KGW Great Toy Drive. Coupons toward a purchase at the Trail Blazers Fan Shop will be handed out to anyone who contributes to the toy collection. Donations will be collected during ingress.
