Thousands of people have once again packed downtown Nashville to watch Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Because so many people showed up to watch Game 1 in downtown Nashville, the city has opened a third viewing area for fans.

A viewing party has been added on Fourth and Demonbreun. Two other parties will go on as scheduled at the Bridgestone plaza and Walk of Fame Park.

Some fans told Channel 4 they’d rather go downtown for the full Smashville experience than watch the game on TV.

“We really like to be outside. My daughter just had a double lung transplant, so we’ve been cooped up a lot. So we’re just so happy to be outside. I’m just so glad and grateful that they do this,” said Sabrina Williams, a Predators fans.

Fans began staking out their spots for the plaza party as early as 11 a.m., so they had to deal with Wednesday’s heat.

Doctors reminded everyone to stay hydrated.

“If you’re having trouble concentrating, you’re feeling a little dizzy, things just don’t seem as clear as they should be,” said Dr. Corey Slovis with Vanderbilt University Medical Center. “Get to a cool place, rest, and if you don’t feel better, seek medical attention.”

“We brought plenty of waters. We have them in our wagon. We had some ice in there, so we’re going to keep it cool that way and just throw the blanket over it. So hopefully they’ll stay cool for it and everything,” said Alexis Reece, a Predators fan.
