Thousands of students fill Ford Center for Thunderbolts education day
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - If you saw all a bunch of school buses in downtown Evansville Tuesday, it’s because thousands of students got to take in a hockey game.
The Evansville Thunderbolts held their annual education day at the Ford Center.
More than 7,600 students from all over the Tri-State were there.
The Bolts took on the Peoria Riverman.
It ended in a 6-3 loss for Evansville, but the students tell us they still had fun learning about hockey and being out of the classroom for most of the day.
The Thunderbolts next home game will be on Saturday, November 18 against the Quad City Storm. The puck drops at 7 p.m.
