PAXTON — The Paxton Park District is still hopeful to host a bus trip to a Chicago Blackhawks hockey game in late March.  

The price for the trip would be around $120, assuming the park district is able to get roughly 40 people signed up.

The trip is being planned around the Sunday, March 29, game in Chicago, where the Blackhawks will be playing the L.A. Kings at 2 p.m.
