The Blackhawks have announced the events before their home opener on Friday against the Detroit Red Wings.
The event will be outside if the weather is nice — and it’s supposed to be gorgeous tomorrow (near 70 degrees after a cold week sounds lovely).
There will be a red carpet experience this year. The United Center Atrium doors will open at 3 PM. The first Blackhawks celebrity arrivals — the current team plus Blackhawks alumni and Tommy Hawk — are expected around 4:30 PM. The first 3,000 people to line the carpet inside the Atrium or outside on Madison Street will receive a free Blackhawks rally towel.
Also, for those attending in person, fans are encouraged to be in their seats by 7:25 to catch this season’s opening show inside the arena. There will also be some great food and drink specials for the big first home date of the season.
