The Springfield Falcons hockey game was not the only event held at the Mass Mutual Center on Saturday evening.
The National Association of Square Dancers have been in Springfield all week, prepping for their 2015 national convention.
Saturday night, they hosted a square dancing exhibit.
Residents were invited to watch the dancers perform and also to learn how to square dance themselves.
While the event was about dancing and having fun, the event managers said that prepping for the convention has been nothing but work.
"We're having fun when we go to dance, but we've had no dancing all week," said Judy Clifford. "It's been down to business. It's been meetings. It's been a rigorous schedule for the national executive committee. It's been a lot of planning and support from our committee chairmen."
The square dancing event lasted from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
