We know State of Hockey fans like to party. That’s why the Minnesota Wild is hosting pregame parties for both Opening Night Oct. 3 and the Oct. 5 home game.
Both events will take place from 4:30-6:30 p.m. outside Gate 2 of Xcel Energy Center. The Wild takes on Los Angeles this Thursday, Oct. 3, at 7 p.m., and Anaheim on this Saturday, Oct. 5, at 7 p.m.
The parties will include live music by Five Man Advantage, food and drink featuring the Bud Light Ice Bar with happy hour prices, a Hockey Lodge retail booth, a KFAN 100.3 FM booth, NHL Alumni autographs, face painters and the University of Minnesota Drum Line. Additionally on Thursday only, FOX Sports North will have a promotional booth, while KFAN’s Dan Barriero will broadcast live from 3-6:30 p.m.
In addition, all fans in attendance on Thursday receive a Wild 2014 calendar courtesy of Xcel Energy, Wells Fargo and FOX Sports North. All fans in attendance Saturday will receive a blaze orange Wild baseball cap compliments of Gander Mountain, Remington and Pheasants Forever.
