City Proclaims Hockey Week in Regina
Mayor Michael Fougere has proclaimed October 21 – 27 as Hockey Week in Regina. This week-long celebration leads up to the 2019 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic and WHL Prairie Classic games.
“Hockey is a big part of life in Canada. The game is about staying active and having fun,” said Mayor Fougere. “As a player, coach, or fan, it brings people together and helps build strong communities. Hockey Week will be a demonstration of that spirit, as volunteers and our community partners are offering hockey-themed activities around the city that are fun for all ages.”
Mayor Fougere raised the 2019 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic flag at City Hall this morning to kick off the activities in celebration of Hockey Week. Regina Downtown is a hub of activity, with a Hockey Film Festival, free outdoor pancake breakfast, ball hockey tournament and tailgate party among the fun activities for everyone to enjoy. Free skates will be held at the Brandt Centre during the week as well.
Community partners, including REAL, Tourism Regina, Tourism Saskatchewan, Regina Downtown BID, Regina Warehouse District and the Regina Hotel Association, encourage residents and visitors to wear their team jerseys during Hockey Week while taking part in the festivities.
The City encourages everyone to plan a safe ride home during Hockey Week. Regina Transit will be providing free shuttle service on Saturday, October 26 running 5:45 to 8 p.m. and post-game. Shuttle location information can be found at Regina.ca/transit or by calling 306-777-RIDE (7433).
