NHL All Star Weekend in Tampa is almost here and if you aren’t planning on going to the game or perhaps aren’t all that big of a hockey fan, there are plenty of other events and festivities happening all around town that you’ll still want to check out.
The weekend will officially kick-off with the opening of the FREE 2018 NHL All-Star Pregame Fan Festival, which starts later today at 5 p.m. and run until 10 p.m. Happening over in the Amalie Arena Silver Parking Lot and nearby Cotanchobee Park, the festival will be great for kids and there will be lots of opportunities to meet all the NHL mascots, check out the NHL All Star Skills Zone, and also snap some photos with the famed Stanley Cup and various NHL Players from the past and present.
The pregame fest will also be open on Saturday from noon to 11 p.m. and also on Sunday before the game from noon until 3:30 p.m.
Also on Sunday, be sure to swing over to Amalie Arena early for the NHL All Star red carpet event, where you’ll get to see many of this year’s players, plenty of former players, and more than a few celebrities as well.
There’s also The Enterprise NHL All Star Friday Night event that will be headlined by another free concert, so if you’re looking for something to do this evening, head on over to Curtis Hixon Park and get the all star party going early!
