Ice Fest

Tommorrow the Lightning is hosting Ice Fest, their annual fan event where you can get free t-shirts, watch an open practice, a charity hockey game featuring alumni and check out the ice girls. Thrilling? I'm sure the practice might be neat to see, but otherwise events like this are really just for the kids. Full details can be found here.

But interesting tidbit in the press release is that you can assist the Lightning Foundation by purchasing Tampa Bay Lightning license plates! I couldn't find a photo of what it looks like on the Lightning website, but I did find one on Walmart (!?!?!?). Curious as I don't think of Walmart as my go-to stop for Lightning merchandise
