The Detroit Red Wings are inviting their fans to visit Joe Louis Arena for autograph sessions and other events as part of HockeyFest 2009. The two-day fan celebration begins Friday from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. with a free session for families experiencing economic hardships.
Talked to my buddy works security for the Wings, sounds like it's going to be a pretty sweet little ordeal with live music, food, etc.
Saturday's festivities run from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. and cost $20 for adults and $10 for children. Season ticket holders can attend free of charge.
If I wasn't heading to Grand Rapids for a hockey tourney, I'd probably be attending. If anyone makes it down there, please feel free to share your experience with me.
Nicklas Lidstrom, Tomas Holmstrom, Dan Cleary, Kris Draper and Jason Williams are among the Red Wings players expected to appear.
Also just got an e-mail from the Wings, #19 will also be in attendance.
