Thunderbirds and MGM Springfield team up for 3rd annual Opening night block party

Hampden County

Before the Springfield Thunderbirds dropped the puck for their home opener, fans were invited to a block party. 

It was part of the Third-Annual Opening Night Block Party. MGM Springfield played host to the party at their brand-new outdoor plaza. 

It featured a live music performance from “Unusually Normal.”  The Thunderbirds team was introduced and featured through a red-carpet entrance.

Ronnie Barrios, a Springfield resident, told 22News the fans are excited, “We’re very excited to be part of the thunderbirds and the new season. I hope they make it all the way through to the cup, and we’re very excited to be a season holder, we just want to be a part of the excitement for this year.” 

This year’s special promotions include, “Kids’ Halloween – Spooky Sunday Funday” on Sunday, October 28, as well as Harry Potter Night.
