Red Wings to hold special open skate at Joe Louis Arena on holiday Monday

DETROIT – As part of their ongoing ‘Hockeytown Thanks’ initiative, the Detroit Red Wings will be hosting a special open skate at The Joe this coming Monday, October 8 – Thanksgiving in Canada and Columbus Day in the United States. Beginning at 10:00 a.m., fans from both sides of the border are invited to visit The Joe and experience the thrill of skating on the same ice surface as the 11-time Stanley Cup champs. Four (4) one-hour skating sessions will be held, with the final session ending at 2:00 p.m.

Complimentary parking will be available at Joe Louis Arena’s Riverfront Lot on Monday. Fans are asked to bring their own skates as rental skates will NOT be available. Helmets are strongly encouraged, especially for skaters aged 10 and under. Attendees will also be permitted to bring their own food which can be consumed on the JLA concourse. Limited food service will be available at select arena concession stands, including special $1 hot dogs/popcorn/soft drinks. Arena doors will open 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the event while hockey sticks and pucks will not be permitted on the ice surface under any circumstances. Mandatory pre-registration for Monday’s special open skate is currently taking place online at DetroitRedWings.com/OpenSkate and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
