The City of Windsor will play host to Ron MacLean and the Rogers Hometown Hockey tour this November at the riverfront’s Festival Plaza.
Windsor will host two days of hockey celebrations taking place on Saturday, November 19th from noon to 6pm and Sunday November 20th, from noon to 10pm, with a special Sportsnet Broadcast at 7pm Sunday featuring MacLean and co-host Tara Slone.
“Hockey is part of the very fabric of our community,” said Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens. “Whether its moms and dads bundling up the little ones for an early morning practice, families and friends cozying up on a winter night to watch the big game, or our beloved Spitfires growing into the next superstars before our very eyes—hockey is part of who we are in Windsor, and we’re very proud to help celebrate the game with Rogers and bring this free festival to fans across the region.”
Windsor is one of a series of communities taking part in the weekly tour stops during the 2016-2017 NHL Season.
The family-friendly weekend tells the stories of local upcoming talent and alumni, and provides an inviting atmosphere for the community to come together to show their passion for the game and ultimately celebrate the game that has been woven tightly into our great Canadian culture.
More details on the event will be released as the weekend approaches.
