The event may be taking place a year later than first planned, but the elements for December’s Hockeytown Winter Festival are starting to come together. Of course a major component of the two week event will be the first ever outdoor edition of an Ontario Hockey League game with the Saginaw Spirit, Plymouth Whalers, Windsor Spitfires, and London Knights front and center at Comerica Park in Detroit on December 29th. The Spirit and Spitfires will take the ice at 1:00 pm, with the Whalers, and Knights following that game up at 5:00 pm.
The game times and other updated details were unveiled earlier today for the business community and media of the Great Lakes Bay Region with Olympia Entertainment President Tom Wilson, Plymouth Whalers President and Head Coach Mike Vellucci, and Spirit President Craig Goslin providing the details.
Ticket prices for the OHL doubleheader are listed at $38.00, $28.00 and $18.00 dollars, and Saginaw Spirit season tickets holders can purchase the $38.00 premium view seats for $30.00. Those interested can contact the Spirit at 989-497-7747 to pre-order their tickets today, with Spirit season ticket holders given the first priority in choosing seats.
