How to Celebrate the Tampa Bay Lightning this Wednesday!

The Tampa Bay Lightning are Stanley Cup champions, giving us another glimmer of hope that 2020 can only get better from here and now it’s time to celebrate…safely, of course!

We think Mayor Jane Castor of Tampa said it best,

“The Stanley Cup is once again coming home to Tampa and we could not be more proud of the Tampa Bay Lightning for embodying the resilient, fighting spirit of the Tampa Bay community and for bringing the Cup home.

Despite every challenge this past year, Tampa continues to ensure that our comeback is even greater than any setback. Thank you to our team for working hard, playing hard, and giving our community something to celebrate. We cannotwait for Stanley to get that tan. GO BOLTS!”

The team returns to Tampa on Tuesday evening after months of being in the bubble in Canada (since July 26!).
