Michigan values its traditions. We’re proud of our cold winters – and we’re proud to thrive in them each and every year. We don’t flock towards warmer weather at the first sign of snow, and instead relish the opportunity to dive headfirst into winter fun.
This year, immerse yourself in Michigan’s traditions with the Winter Classic, an NHL event that embodies “winter” in the Great Lakes State.
Ring in the new year on January 1st in Ann Arbor’s Michigan Stadium to see the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Detroit Red Wings face off in a competition that promises to keep the audience out of their seats and cheering on the team – whether you’re watching from the ring or the television screen.
Hockey has been deeply embedded in Michigan’s ethos for generations, and it’s exciting to see the tradition continue… In 2014, and for years to come.
