Walleye Winterfest sells 10,000 tickets for outdoor hockey games

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Walleye Winterfest, presented by ProMedica, has hit its first ticket milestone: A total of 10,000 tickets have already been sold for the first two outdoor hockey games in ECHL history. The games will be played at Fifth Third Field in downtown Toledo on Dec. 27, 2014 and Jan. 3, 2015.

"We couldn't be more thrilled that nine months before Winterfest, the demand for tickets is so great," said Erik Ibsen, assistant general manager of ticket sales. "We hope these games mirror a Mud Hens Opening Day crowd, and we believe this excitement will continue to grow as the games get closer."

The Toledo Walleye take the ice Dec. 27 to face Kalamazoo, and take on Fort Wayne a week later on Jan. 3. These two games are part of a 10-day community wide Winterfest celebration.

The outdoor rink will also host an alumni game between Toledo and Fort Wayne, a college game between Bowling Green State University and Robert Morris University, more than 100 youth, high school and adult hockey games, as well as several community open skates. 

Winterfest ticket packages are currently available for all Walleye and Mud Hens game plan holders. Call the Toledo Walleye box office at 419-725-9255 to be put on a list to receive ticket information updates. 

Fans wanting to schedule a group event during Winterfest can call the box office or visit the website.

    The City of Toledo is apologizing to a man after they billed him for cutting grass on public property near his home.  Anthony Davis and his wife have lived in their home in south Toledo since 1995.
