Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour is coming to Mount Pearl

The City of Mount Pearl has one more reason to celebrate their deep love of hockey. Rogers Hometown Hockey announced its 2018-2019 tour dates today, including a stop in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland and Labrador, in November 2018.

“We are very proud to welcome Rogers Hometown Hockey to Mount Pearl,” said Mayor Dave Aker. “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 their 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,” continued Mayor Dave Aker. “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 November 17th to 18th, 2018. Complete details of the tour stop will be available on the City’s website and social channels as they become available.
