(WKTV) - Everything is coming together for Wednesday night's Comets home opener at Utica's Memorial Auditorium.
Preparations are underway not only for the big game, but also for the fan fest set for Wednesday evening.
Those who were unable to get a ticket to the sold-out game can head out to Whitesboro Street where the game will be broadcast on a giant screen.
Fans are eager to check out the Aud's new look and watch the hometown team's local debut. And Comets officials are eager to show it off.
"We can't wait to open the door and see what fans think about the new Aud," Mark Caswell Jr., director of communications for the Comets said. "The excitement is something we've all been looking forward to since June 14. (It's) something we've all talked about, so it's cool it's right there. We're on the eve of opening night."
The Comets will take on the Albany Devils at 7:35 p.m. Wednesday and the fan fest kicks off at 4 p.m.
