National Hockey League's Centennial Fan Arena
The Dublin Irish Festival is partnering with the Columbus Blue Jackets, to present the NHL's Centennial Fan Arena - a traveling fan experience with a 53-foot museum truck featuring digital displays, memorabilia and a customized area representing Blue Jackets history. Fans can also have their photo taken with the Stanley Cup - the oldest and most revered trophy in professional sports. Fans can "clear the ice" in a virtual reality experience that allows them to compete against each other in a race to resurface the ice.
Mayor Greg Peterson invites the community to "celebrate two landmark anniversaries in the heart of Dublin, Ohio", as the NHL celebrates 100 years and the Dublin Irish Festival celebrates 30!
