We shouldn’t need to tell you who Gritty is, but in case you’ve been immersed in an intense coding camp for the last six months: He is the uber-popular, googly-eyed mascot of the Philadelphia Flyers hockey team, designed by Delawarean Dave Raymond and introduced to the world last September.
Gritty will be visiting the Xfinity Store at Christiana Mall on Saturday, April 13, for a meet-and-greet with fans from 4 to 5 p.m. (You’ll want to get there early — large crowds are expected).
Can’t make it to the mall of Saturday? (Or just can’t get enough of Gritty?)
The beloved mascot will also make an appearance at Introduced by Technical.ly, a Philly Tech Week 2019 presented by Comcast event, an all-day event on May 9 at Convene CityView in Philadelphia. Not only will Gritty be there, there will be a panel discussion with marketing team behind him, who will share their process and how they’ve handled and built off of the viral success of the Flyers’ mascot.
