Party on the Plaza Kicks Off at 4:30pm Saturday
Webster Bank Arena will host NHL action for the third straight year when the New York Islanders battle the New York Rangers this Saturday at 7 p.m., but the fun doesn't have to wait. Before the puck drops, all fans are encouraged to start the festivities early with a pre-game Party on the Plaza beginning at 4:30 p.m.
The world's greatest (and only) all hockey band The Zambonis and School of Rock New Canaan/Ridgefield will perform live beginning at 5 p.m. and food and beverages will be available for purchase through 6:30 p.m. In addition, younger fans can take advantage of inflatables courtesy of the Islanders and Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
