Who says there’s no puck to watch?
Making the trip, 114 elite street hockey teams will be in attendance for this invitation-only national championship that has $30,000 up for grabs for the men’s and women’s team victors. Clifton Hill will be taken over by 11 pro-style rinks constructed around Victoria Avenue during the two-day festival taking place today through Saturday.
Live coverage of the Hockey Night in Canada’s Play On! national championships will be broadcast on CBC. For a full schedule of events, check out the official event website.
Since we’re so close to the festivities here in Buffalo, this would be a great event to spend an autumn weekend in the Falls. Admission to the festival is free, but space is limited to a first come, first serve basis to watch teams compete. Families are highly encouraged to make a day out of the event.
