COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Columbus Blue Jackets and Nationwide Insurance, the official sponsor of Blue Jackets fans this season, present the first "Nationwide Night" of the year with a pre-game party on the Front St. plaza on Friday, Oct. 30 before the Jackets play host to Sidney Crosby and the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins. The plaza party starts at 4 p.m. and runs until the puck drops at 7 p.m. Game tickets are not required to attend the plaza party.

Festivities will include live musical entertainment, beverage offerings, and a photo booth attraction where fans may have a free souvenir photo taken. After the game, fans may attend a free public skating session on the main ice. Skate rental will be available.

Nationwide's season-long celebration of Blue Jackets "Fandemonium" features a number of interactive opportunities starting with the introduction of the revamped Nationwide Insurance Fan Lounge, the primary staging area for in-game contests and promotions which will be enhanced by the addition of premium seating for four guests atop the structure.

Friday also kicks off the Nationwide Insurance Fandemonium Sweepstakes which is highlighted by a grand prize road trip to see the Blue Jackets play the Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center on Saturday, January 23, 2010. The complete prize package includes round-trip airfare for two to Minnesota; two tickets to the game; hotel accommodations and $500 in spending cash. Before the grand prize is awarded, instant winners will be chosen each day. Daily prizes include a Blue Jackets Fathead, tickets to a Blue Jackets home game with special access to the Nationwide Insurance Fan Lounge, or gift codes for NHL merchandise on nhl.com.
