The inaugural Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour continues its run with a return to Manitoba this weekend.
Week 8 in the NHL will see the Vancouver Canucks visit the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday, but the local action will be in the Wheat City — home of the Brandon Wheat Kings.
The Rogers Hometown Hockey Festival will be held on the grounds of Brandon’s Keystone Centre from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, the 30th.
The two-day festival features interactive hockey activities, live bands, food vendors, free giveaways, and will culminate in a live, on-site pre-game show broadcast with Ron MacLean during the Sunday afternoon NHL match-up between Vancouver and Detroit (City, 12:30 p.m. CT).
The Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour was in Manitoba earlier this season in Selkirk and will be back in the province on March 8 when Thompson hosts festivities.
