BOSTON - The Boston Bruins announced today, May 9, that they will host a Boston Bruins Playoffs Fan Fest presented by Beth Israel Lahey health and outdoor watch party in conjunction with the 2019 Eastern Conference Final home games at TD Garden. The event will take place on Canal Street and is in support of the Downtown North Association and the City of Boston's effort to make Canal Street a multi-purpose venue to attract people to the area, an idea that grew from the North Station Action Mobility Plan.
On Thursday, May 9, the Fan Fest will start at 5:30 p.m. ahead of Game One, which will start at 8:00 p.m. Once the game is underway, fans who don't have tickets can watch the NBCSN broadcast of the game in its entirety on the big screen located within the Fan Fest location on Canal Street.
Admission is free and fans do not need a ticket to the game to participate in any of the festivities. Fans of all ages can enjoy live entertainment, participate in activities and games and have the opportunity to win prizes.
NESN's Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley will be broadcasting live from Fan Fest as part of the network's one-hour Bruins pregame show Bruins Face-Off Live presented by EchoStor Technologies starting at 7:00 p.m.
