Earlier this Fall the annual community hockey festival tour kicked off in Niagara Falls, and it will soon be making a stop in Oakville.
Now in its fourth year, Hometown Hockey makes appearances in 24 different communities as it travels across Canada throughout the NHL season. The event celebrates local hockey and community heritage, and is the ultimate hockey fan experience with activities for the whole family.
This year’s tour will visit 9 provinces over 5 months, and for the first time since its creation in 2014, will be showcasing in the Town of Oakville.
On Saturday November 25th and Sunday November 26th Sportsnet and Rogers will be hosting the 8th stop of the 2017-2018 tour. The festivities will take place in the area of 184 Church Street downtown.
From 12pm – 6pm on Saturday, and 11am – 6pm on Sunday the event will be held outdoors featuring games, activities, live entertainment, and NHL alumni. To conclude the weekend there will be an outdoor viewing party where Sportnet hosts Tara Slone and Ron McLean will be broadcasting live on site from their mobile studio as the New York Rangers play the Vancouver Canucks.
