Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour Coming to Corner Brook
Written by Administrator on September 11, 2015
Corner Brook is one of 24 communities across 10 provinces and one territory to host the tour in 2015-16. Starting in Kitchener, ON the festival promises to be bigger than last year, highlighting the best of each town and city and its deep hockey roots.
“I am pleased to welcome Hometown Hockey to Corner Brook. It is an honour to have the opportunity to support this event as we are a proud hockey city and we look forward to sharing our history and stories,” said Mayor Pender.
This event will feature NHL Alumni, hometown heroes, local entertainment, and all new hockey stories delivered by host Ron MacLean, from inside the Sportsnet Mobile Studio.
“Each weekend is a uniquely Canadian experience that brings us all together, said MacLean. “Our mantra has been simple – take you someplace and tell a story. We’ve discovered at each stop a story that belongs to us as no other story could. It’s of Canadians, with hockey at its core.”
All activities will take place at the Civic Centre, 1 Canada Games Place.
