Springfield Thunderbirds fans of all ages got to skate with the AHL mascots Sunday afternoon.

The Thunderbirds hosted the public ice skating session at MGM Springfield’s outdoor rink. 

Families and children enjoyed hours of ice skating and meeting their favorite mascots. 

One event goer told 22News, “I thought I was going to crash into a lot of things but I didn’t. I just pushed pushed and glided, I was doing so good. I can’t believe I was going so fast and in control.”

The event took place Sunday afternoon kicking off the evening’s AHL All-Star Skills competition.
