This family-friendly event will include a chance to participate in skills and drills competitions on a synthetic ice rink, a chance to explore and take a selfie inside a mock Bruins locker room, and there will also be chances to join NESN for some virtual reality experiences. Specifically for kids, there will be a face painting zone, a poster making station and a chance to compete at Bruins-themed trivia.
