Hyped for Hockey Season? Here are 3 Ways to Celebrate the Blues

St. Louis Blues fans, rejoice: hockey season is here! You might have tickets for the first game of the season on Oct. 4 against the Winnipeg Jets, but what if you just can’t hold in your hockey excitement that long?

Here are a few ways to celebrate the Blues once the puck drops.

Get pumped up with the Blues ScavengAR Hunt

You’ve probably been in a scavenger hunt before… But have you tried a ScavengAR Hunt? That capital “AR” stands for augmented reality, and using a smartphone fans can follow clues to hunt for 10 hidden artifacts across St. Louis in this digital game. Rewards like discounts can be earned while you play, and tickets will be awarded to randomly-selected participants who find all 10 artifacts. The game wraps up at 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 9, so start playing now for your chance to win.

Prep for this season’s stadium changes

Enterprise Center is bringing a plethora of changes and updates to this coming hockey season! Fans can now arrive to the game early for the new pregame happy hour, which kicks off 90 minutes before each home game—and attendees can now skip the traffic and stay late at postgame parties. The Bud Light Happy Hour and Bud Light 4th Period celebrations will be held in two new spaces: the open-to-all Anheuser-Busch Biergarten and the Bud Light Sports Pub, which is available for Club Level-ticket holders and full-season ticket holders before the game and all guests after the game.

Fans should also know that tickets for all St. Louis Blues home games will now be entirely mobile. Using the NHL app for iPhone or Android devices, attendees will show an e-ticket to enter the event. More information on how to download the app, access e-tickets and transfer tickets can be found on the St. Louis Blues website.

Celebrate the season at the Pregame Rally

Kick off the first weekend game of the season with a pregame rally! Before the St. Louis Blues take on the Chicago Blackhawks on Oct. 6, fans can enjoy live music and cheer for players as they enter on the blue carpet. Louie and the Blue Crew will also make appearances, so have your camera ready. The event starts at 3 p.m. at the corner of 14th Street and Clark Avenue.
