5 Ways to Get Into the #BoltsBorough Spirit
Be the thunder throughout the playoff season with these 5 tips
Join us at the #BoltsBorough Kick Off Event
What better way to kickoff the playoff season than snapping a photo with Thunderbug and the Lightning Girls? Come enjoy live entertainment, Lightning giveaways, and a lineup of delicious local food trucks this Monday, April 9 at Joe Chillura Courthouse Square.
Get your head in the game
Whether you're a die-hard Tampa Bay Lightning fan or just discovering your interest in ice hockey, there is nothing quite like experiencing a home game at Amalie Arena. Can't get a ticket to the fun? You're in luck - Hillsborough's known as a hockey town with plenty of nearby watch parties in reach.
Hillsborough County is a sea of blue as we continue through the playoffs. Join in the fun by donning your best blue attire as much as possible. (We promise your boss won't notice you wearing your blue dress shirt every day of the week.) Wear Bolts gear when you go out and about and explore the area, especially on game days!
Win by a hair
Don't you dare shave off that playoff beard! Not only is it bad luck, but it is for a good cause. Each year the Tampa Bay Lightning teams up with a charity to raise awareness for various causes with their Beard-a-Thon. At our #BoltsBorough Kick Off Event, barbers will be on hand to help you start with a clean face. Grow out your beard as long as we are in the playoffs. When someone questions your scruff, tell them you are supporting your Bolts and the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation.
