Rogers Hometown Hockey will be making a tour stop in Lacombe.

Co-hosted by Red Deer’s own Ron MacLean, the travelling hockey show visits communities across Canada and showcases their unique stories during live broadcasts each Sunday during the NHL season.

Each tour stop includes a two-day festival featuring live entertainment, local celebrities, NHL alumni and a multitude of activities for the whole family to enjoy. Each Sunday concludes with an outdoor viewing party of an NHL game broadcast nationally on Sportsnet and hosted by Ron MacLean and Tara Slone.

“This is an amazing opportunity for local residents to celebrate our love for hockey and sports, our community spirit, and to showcase Lacombe to Canadians from coast to coast to coast,” said Lacombe Mayor Steve Christie. “On behalf of Council, I thank the organizers of the Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour for selecting our beautiful little city for this fun, community-focused event.”

Now entering its fourth year, Rogers Hometown Hockey visited Red Deer in its first season back in 2014.

Lacombe’s tour stop is slated for February 3-4, 2018 and will feature a game in Montreal between the Canadiens and Ottawa Senators.
