Sacramento Kings offer media a glimpse and taste of menu items that are locally and carefully sourced but still taste, in essence, like arena food.

The Sacramento Kings will hold an open practice at Golden 1 Center on Oct. 1, the team’s first public event at their new downtown arena.

The event – dubbed Fan Fest – will be free, but fans will need to secure tickets at www.Kings.com/FanFest. Fans will be able to get up to four tickets. The practice is scheduled to run from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

In addition to the practice, fans will “be able to explore the arena (and) get acclimated with Local Eats stands,” according to a team press release.

A Kings practice will be part of what is expected to be a busy week at Golden 1 Center. The team news release said the Kings will “unveil a schedule of select events – private and public” in the days ahead.

The open practice will be followed three days later by a Paul McCartney concert, the first major event at the $556 million arena. It launches a busy first month for the arena – 10 events are planned for October at Golden 1, including a Maroon 5 concert, Kings games and a WWE event.

The city of Sacramento will install 10 surveillance cameras near the new Golden 1 Center arena. A growing number of such cameras are going up in key intersections around the city.
