This Thanksgiving weekend, London hockey fans will experience the ultimate hockey festival as the Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour presented by Scotiabank and Dodge makes its first stop of the season in our town with local heroes Eric Lindros and Darryl Sittler making appearances alongside host Ron MacLean.
The two-day hockey celebration gets underway Saturday, Oct. 11 at Noon ET from Budweiser Gardens and Covent Market Plaza, and concludes Sunday night following an outdoor viewing party of the first Rogers Hometown Hockey broadcast. The game features the Toronto Maple Leafs vs. New York Rangers, with the pre-game show hosted live onsite by MacLean from the Sportsnet Mobile Studio at 6:30 p.m. ET on City.
Today Matt Loop (who may or may not have been dressed like a banana) was at Springbank Gardens to host the Community in Motion: the Serious(ly) Fun Run! What looked to be a very wet day turned out to be beautiful and Community Living London raised more money than ever!
The KOI (Kitchener Ontario Independent) Music Festival kicks off tonight in Downtown Kitchener. And it’s massive.
It’s one of those festivals that consistently brings together various venues, plenty of bands from a spectrum of genres and mashes together indie artists and headliners. Simply put: go grab a ticket; they’re ridiculously inexpensive.
