NHL All-Star Weekend
Columbus will be deluged in a few days with ice-hockey fans from Ohio, neighboring states and beyond. An estimated 140,000 people, including 8,000 to 10,000 out-of-towners, are expected to partake in the myriad events that make up NHL All-Star Weekend. The economic impact of the event is expected to extend well beyond the obvious crowds, as Sunday’s game will be seen in 150 countries, providing rare and valuable media exposure for the city. Going to be a fun time will be doing the slide ha.
