If you didn't hear about it, see it or attend it then you're probably frozen in a block of ice!
Rogers Home Town Hockey took over Okotoks the weekend of Feb 23 & 24 with well-known names like Ron McLean, Tara Slone, Alan Doyle, lots of hockey greats and more! They were super kind to attend the Okotoks Jr. A Oilers hockey game to commentate with our local broadcasters. Jay Magnussen was thrilled to enjoy lunch with Ron McLean at a local Okotoks golf club.
Olde Towne Okotoks was closed to traffic due to the mobile broadcasting trailer, stage, street hockey rink, and plenty more fun exhibits. Despite the frigid temperatures Okotoks resident showed up in droves to take in the traveling SportsNet hockey festival! We saw plenty of Okotoks Minor Hockey players hashing it out on the main street in the ball hockey rink, picked up some free swag, visited with lots of bundled up residents of Okotoks and saw tons of smiling faces. Hockey is more than a sport in Okotoks - it's a community, a way of life, a reason for people to get together, and more!
If you take a moment to think, we have a lot of really cool opportunities here in Okotoks, Home Town Hockey is just one of them. Take the time to check out an Okotoks Oilers Jr A Hockey game, or during warmer months visit the Okotoks Dawgs baseball stadium, or consider the many cool festivals and community events like the Chili Cook-Off, Parade Day and so much more!
Can you tell that we love Okotoks! Do you?
