My husband is a huge hockey fan. He loves the sport. TSN and CBC ‘hockey night in Canada’ are regular channels in our house. He has made a conscious effort to share his love of the game with our three children.
We were given the opportunity to review a 67’s game. That is right up our ally of family fun.
We got tickets to see the 67’s vs the Peterborough Petes. It was a Sunday afternoon game. Our little ones have difficulties staying up to late, so this game time of 2:00 pm was perfect for them.
The concourse is set up to be very family friendly. When we were there, Scouts Canada was in attendance doing a food drive. As well as a cheer-leading troop (around the ages of 10-13) helping to rev up the crowd. It was quite fun. The kids had a ton of things to look at and watch.
We noticed that quite a number of families were there, making it easier for us to relax. We were less concerned about our children disturbing other crowd members around us. Most people around us were children.
During intermissions, minor hockey teams played ‘mini match ups’ on the ice. The kids had a blast watching those.
This was our first live hockey game as a family and we lasted two periods (I see this as an accomplishment considering our kids are all three and under. )
All in all, this was a great afternoon out. We all enjoyed out selves and can’t wait for our next 67’s game!
