NCAA Football: Public Invited to Spirited Boca Raton Pep Rally Featuring Band, Spirit Squads, Team Mascots


BOCA RATON, Fla. (December 14, 2022) – This year the Boca Raton Bowl teams will not only battle it out on the football field, University of Toledo’s 120-member band and Liberty University’s 250-member band will go head-to-head in the bowl game’s first-ever joint pep rally on Monday, December 19 at 6 p.m.  Joining in the competition at the free and open-to-the-public event are the teams’ spirit squads with special guest appearances by Toledo’s Mascot Rocky the Rocket and Liberty’s Mascot Sparky the Eagle. The high-energy rally will be located at the Mizner Park Amphitheater at the north end of Mizner Park where plenty of free garage parking is available.

The community, Toledo Rocket fans, Liberty Flames fans and all college football fans are invited to come out to cheer and get in the game spirit at the official pep rally of Palm Beach County’s own sanctioned Bowl game. Hosted by the City of Boca Raton and Mizner Park Amphitheater on the night before the 2022 Boca Raton Bowl, the live performances by the University of Toledo Marching Band and the Liberty University Spirit of the Mountain Marching Band will resonate community and team pride and excitement throughout the amphitheater.

Among the list of songs attendees are guaranteed to hear is the “U of Toledo,” the fight song Toledo’s marching band performs at every home sporting event. Liberty’s fight song, “Fan the Flames,” will also reverberate when the Flames’ marching band takes the stage.

“We encourage everyone to come early because you don’t want to miss a minute of the fanfare,” shared Doug Mosley, executive director of Boca Raton Bowl. “It’s a great opportunity for our Palm Beach County community to roll out the red-carpet welcome for these visiting teams and their fans gathering in celebration of Boca’s annual holiday-timed Bowl tradition.” 

Attendees are encouraged to extend the fun by enjoying the spirit of the holidays throughout Mizner Park and Downtown Boca Raton that offer plenty of holiday lights, and a variety of dining, shopping, and entertainment options.
