Bridgestone Winter Park
The Winter Park will feature an ice rink, concert stage and family-focused activities, which will help to bring the excitement of the NHL’s showcase event outdoors for the community at large to enjoy. Predators CEO Jeff Cogen said the Park will also help to kick off the festivities weeks before the All-Star Weekend on Jan. 30-31, with the Park scheduled to open on Dec. 12.
“Picture the CMA Festival meets the All-Star Game,” Preds President Sean Henry said at a meeting with Nashville media earlier in the year. “We want to make sure we’re celebrating hockey for Nashville and for [tens of thousands] of people.
“There will be a lot of outdoor events, combined with Fan Fair [a NHL staple of All-Star Weekend]. Ideally, the outdoor rink and the park is populated that first week of December, almost like [New York City’s] Rockefeller Center. The League was excited about it because it can really change what the All-Star Game continues to be.”
