Hurricane season is back. To some, this may mean stocking up on bottled water and taping Xs over glass windows, but to a special group of Adrenaline Junkies, this means breaking out foam fingers and preparing for a season of bone-crunching fun, friends, and fellow fans.

The NHL Carolina Hurricanes’ season begins on Oct. 7that 7 p.m. with an Opening Night home game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Opening Night game will feature a Front Lawn Party, complete with live music, an inflatable obstacle course and moon bounce, street hockey, and plenty of food and drinks. Tickets to this game are $25 and up, and can be purchased here.

In addition to Front Lawn Parties, other promotional events include Mix 101.5 WRAL-FM Family Night, featuring $1 hot dogs and discounted tickets in select seating areas; and Canes College Night, when college students can purchase lower level seats for as low as $30 and upper corner seats for as low as $15.  Check out the season’s promotional schedule to see when you can get special deals with Food Drive BOGO, Snap Shot Sunday, and several special giveaways.

With home games now through April, you’ve got plenty of opportunities to transform yourself into a true Caniac. To view the regular season schedule and buy tickets, visit this site. Go Canes!
