There Is Fun in Blue

Fun Winter Activities!

Just because the colder weather is upon us doesn't mean there is less to do in Northeastern New York. Keep busy this winter by participating in some of our fun family activities. 

Visit us as the Empire State Plaza for free learn-to-skate clinics, or come to watch our Blue Cruisers participate in a shoot-out at select Albany Devils games. 

Also, be on the lookout for the BlueShield Healthy Zone Cruiser at many community events throughout the winter months.
