The weekend got off to an exciting start for the Binghamton Senators. They won 4-3 in their first shootout of the year. They also handed the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins their first loss of the year. Read the rest of the story here. Tonight is a Halloween celebration with the Senators at the Arena.

Today begins with the Hawk Halloween parade at noon in downtown Binghamton. You can end the night in Binghamton and the Senators with a Halloween celebration. The Adirondack Phantoms come to town. You are encouraged to put on your best get-up for the Costume Contest during the 2nd intermission. I'll be wearing my costume from the Hawk Halloween parade, so you'll have two chances to see it.

Other Halloween festivities include a Guess the Weight-Pumpkin Contest and Trick or Treating around the Arena. Magician Eric Bill will be on the concourse with his bag of magic tricks throughout the night as well.

It's also the annual Season Ticket Holder Party after the game on the concourse. Butch Neira will be performing pregame and during the Ticket Holder Party. But wait there's more....

Tonight is also AAA night, present your membership card at the Arena Box Office or the B-Sens Executive Office and you'll get 4 dollars off your ticket.

Tara and I will be doing Chuck-a-Puck between the 2nd and 3rd period. Tara will be walking with me in the Hawk Halloween parade today in her costume. So you'll have 2 chances to see her costume too.  Face-off is at 7:05.

Halloween starts early this year so put on the costume and we'll see you in Binghamton at the parade and with the Senators.  LET'S GO SENS.
