TAMPA BAY - The Tampa Bay Lightning have announced details for their third annual Bolts Family Carnival presented by DEX Imaging and Shriners Hospitals For Children, benefitting the Lightning Foundation, which will be held on Sunday, March 19 at AMALIE Arena from 1-4 p.m. All proceeds will benefit the Lightning Foundation, which distributes funds and services to hundreds of local non-profit organizations.
Fans attending the Carnival will be able to interact with the entire Lightning team, coaching staff, alumni and media personalities who will be in rotation throughout 40-plus different game and activity stations throughout AMALIE Arena all afternoon. The event under the big top will include traditional carnival games like dunk tank, skee ball, balloon darts, high striker, bowler roller and bottle toss, along with more modern games like ping pong, Wii and box hockey. Fans will also have an opportunity to take a tour of the Lightning locker room and challenge themselves in the Bolts Rookie Combine, going through some of the same physical testing the players do. Individuals attending this fun-filled day will also have the opportunity to learn about the science of ice and visit with former Bolt greats in Alumni Alley
This is a unique opportunity for fans to interact with Lightning personalities outside of hockey and challenge players and coaches to family fun carnival games while raising money for a good cause. The Bolts Family Carnival will cost $40 per person and $20 for children 12 and under, with all proceeds going to the Lightning Foundation. Season Ticket Members can purchase tickets for the low cost of $35 per person.
Parking is available in the silver, blue, green, brown and teal lots for $5 and the entrance to the arena will be from Ford Thunder Alley.
