Rogers Hometown Hockey announced its 2018-19 tour dates Tuesday will include a stop in Mount Pearl in November.
“We are very proud to welcome Rogers Hometown Hockey to Mount Pearl,” Mayor Dave Aker said in a news release. “Rogers is honouring the tradition of hockey by visiting the communities that contribute to Canada’s hockey culture, and no one loves hockey more than Mount Pearl.”
Returning for a fifth season, the free family-friendly hockey celebration features two days of live entertainment, NHL alumni, local celebrities and hockey-themed activities for all ages. Running from Saturday through to Sunday evening, the festival culminates with an outdoor viewing party of a national NHL game broadcast hosted live by Ron MacLean and Tara Slone on Sportsnet, Canada’s Home of Hockey.
“Rogers Hometown Hockey gives us the opportunity to celebrate two things we love, hockey and community,” Aker said. “Hockey has deep roots in Mount Pearl. We have a respect and a love for the sport and the way it unites our community is nothing short of incredible.”
Rogers Hometown Hockey will visit Mount Pearl from Nov. 17-18. Complete details of the tour stop will be available on the city’s website and social channels as they become available.
