#PredsOnTheSquare: Predators watch party Sunday on Market Square!

Hundreds turned out in Knoxville's Market Square to watch the Preds face the Pens in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup.

KNOXVILLE - You've seen the giant watch parties outside Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

Now it's Knoxville's turn.

Fans will be able to watch the Nashville Predators on Sunday night take on the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final from a big screen in Market Square.

The game starts at 8 p.m. on WBIR. The Penguins lead 3-2.

It'd be smart to bring your own chair. There'll be only a limited number of seats provided on the Square.

Authorities remind the public that open containers of alcohol aren't allowed on the Square outside of businesses. But there are numerous restaurants that face out toward the public.

Parking Sunday downtown is free, and there are several garages within walking distance.

Stellar Vision and Sound is providing the audio/visual for the watch party.

Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett announced the watch party during the WIVK 107.7 morning show Friday.

 

 

"Well Jimmy, due to your constant harassment, I have been able to put together a little event on Sunday that will be Predators on the Square. We're going to be watching the Nashville Predators live on Market Square #PredsontheSquare," Burchett said. 

 

 

Burchett said he was originally going to watch the game at Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero's house, but the plans got too big. 

"Yeah, it just got a little big. Rogero's yard's not that big," he said. 

Burchett said he's working with Rogero, city of Knoxville staff, Visit Knoxville and WIVK to bring the event together. Stellar Vision and Sound is helping to provide the audio/visual equipment. 

"This needed a certain level of awesomeness to put together, and I just happen to be that awesome," Burchett said. 

 

 

A large crowd is expected.

"Bring your own catfish," Burchett said, before adding, "that's a perfect waste of a good meal."
