They're calling it the biggest week in Nashville Predators history in Music City. While we've had big hockey moments like the draft, the All-Star game, and a Stanley Cup final here... this could be right up there. Tonight, the city will honor one of the greatest athletes we've had in the retirement of Pekka Rinne's number in the rafters at Bridgestone Arena.
Saturday will be the first outdoor NHL game played in the state of Tennessee with the 2022 Navy Federal Credit Union NHL Stadium Series™ game. That's right, they've built an ice rink in the middle of where the Tennessee Titans call home. Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley will be headlining entertainment for pre-game concerts. There's also a crazy amount of entertainment for the family at Bridgestone Winter Park in the City of Nashville's Walk of Fame Park from Feb. 25-26. This free family-friendly community event will take place across Fifth Avenue from Bridgestone Arena, highlighting the very best of SMASHVILLE, along with several featured live musical performances, Predators fan activations, appearances by Nashville Predators alumni and broadcasters, and more.
Bridgestone Winter Park will be open:
• Thursday, Feb. 24: canceled due to inclement weather
• Friday, Feb. 25: 4:30 p.m. - 10:30 p.m.
• Saturday, Feb. 26: 10:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
