Ottawa Convention Centre and Scotiabank celebrate the 2012 NHL All-Star Game with a Fan Fair interactive theme park that offers hockey fans the chance to participate in the excitement of the 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game by featuring over more than 30 interactive hockey themed attractions and exhibits. You can enjoy this hockey theme park during NHL All-Star Weekend at the Ottawa Convention Centre in downtown Ottawa.
Ottawa serves as host city for the 2012 NHL All-Star Celebration. The 2012 NHL All-Star Game will be played on Sunday, Jan. 29, 2012, at Scotiabank Place and the celebration will begin Thursday, Jan. 26, with a variety events planned throughout the national capital region.
“The league is extremely pleased that Ottawa and Scotiabank Place will be home to the events of all-star weekend 2012,” said Gary Bettman, NHL commissioner. “Ottawa and the Senators have distinguished themselves in hosting the Stanley Cup final and two NHL entry drafts, and I have no doubt they will provide an outstanding welcome for our fans, guests, media and business partners.”
Fans in attendance can enjoy participating in viewing a complete NHL trophy exhibit and pose for pictures with all featured pieces--including Lord Stanley; test their hockey skills in the Molson Canadian sponsored All-Star Skills Zone exhibit; meet NHL Alumni at the SiriusXM Theatre; visit the Tim Hortons ‘Timbits Zone’ that is specifically designed for younger hockey players; size up their shot accuracy at the Bridgestone Shoot Out exhibit. You may also create your own hockey cards while also gaining a shot at collecting some of the rarest of hockey memorabilia. Finally, fans may participate in numerous red carpet events with their favorite NHL players.
It sounds like Ottawa is well prepared for this grand event and that this year’s NHL All-Star weekend will serve to be one of the best both on and off the ice.
