When does the Halloween season begin?
Posted On July 25, 2021
Halloween is back, and this year, the festivities are more of a celebration than a celebration.
The NHL is hosting a new Halloween party on Sunday night, Sept. 29.
The game will be broadcast on NBCSN and streamed on the NHL’s website and the NHL Mobile app, according to a league official.
This year’s festivities include an outdoor hallowess, which will be open to the public at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, as well as decorations, and a parade, which is planned for 6 p.m. to 10 p., and features floats, live music, a performance by “Halloween” star Tanya Tucker and other entertainment.
Halloween is traditionally held in October, but this year’s game is being played during the holidays.
The NHL’s Halloween Party is the third-oldest game in the league’s history, having begun in 1961.
The previous two have been in the spring and fall, the former in 1978 and the latter in 1981.
The Halloween Party has also featured a number of special events.
In 2014, the league and the team have teamed up to create the “Hockey for All” initiative, which includes a $15 million donation to community charities.
Last year, a special Halloween Party in honor of Black History Month was held at the United Center in Chicago, and the game was played on Friday night.
The league has also teamed up with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to distribute a vaccine to more than 100,000 kids who have been diagnosed with a potentially deadly form of the coronavirus.
