Lightning Fan Fest includes 'badges' game, free hockey clinic

The Tampa Bay Lightning will welcome fans back to the Forum with their annual Fan Fest on Saturday.

The free event, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., features a “battle of the badges” charity game between local firefighters, police officers and Lightning personalities such as team co-founder Phil Esposito and former captain Dave Andreychuck.

Current Lightning players will meet fans and sign autographs in the arena's concourse beginning at 11:45 a.m., while the Lightning Kids Zone will offer face-painting, balloon animals and other activities for young fans.

Discounted Lightning merchandise will be on sale and concessions stands will offer fans discounted food items and free popcorn.

Lightning single-game tickets will be on sale at the Forum box office.

A free youth hockey clinic for ages 12-and-under will take place directly following Fan Fest at 4 p.m. Participants must register at tampabaylightning.com/LightningMade.

Fans should park in either the Forum East or Forum West parking lots and enter through the main entrance.
