Hockey for the Whole Family Ottawa 67’s Style
My children’s school participates in a wonderful free program run by the Ottawa 67’s Junior Hockey Team
called Adopt A School. Free tickets to all 67’s home games are given out to schools all over Ottawa and the valley. Our family was lucky enough to win tickets in September. This was an excellent opportunity to take my 2 year old son for his first every hockey game and not worry about the cost of the tickets if we had to leave early.
All 3 of the kids and I went to the 67’s game together, I have not been for quite a long time and I must admit I was very impressed. I was impressed by how the actual hockey game is only a part of the overall experience. Face painting, bouncy castles and live music made the arena a lively and colourful place to experience. As a parent I appreciated the moderate cost of the souvenirs. We purchased pompoms, a foam finger, a hat, a mini stick and a t-shirt for under 50.00. We munched on regular hockey fair, popcorn, french fries, and best of all Egg Rolls from the famous Ottawa Golden Palace ! It was very impressive!
I was able to speak to Erin the community manager and found out about all the amazing community partnerships & community opportunities the 67’s support. Best of all, the 67’s host birthday parties! Overall we were very pleased with the entire experience, great atmosphere, family friendly and affordable.
