Oro-Medonte residents urged to paint the township red before Hometown Hockey arrives

Show your community spirit by decorating your home or storefront in red and white

In advance of the Hometown Hockey roadshow making a stop in Oro-Medonte, residents are asked to paint the town red… literally.

Oro-Medonte residents and businesses are being encouraged to show community spirit by decorating their homes and storefronts with hockey and Canadian-themed red and white decorations.

The kick-off to Paint the Township Red happens Monday, November 1 and runs until the Hometown Hockey festival closes a week later. Residents can share images of their decorated homes and businesses on social media by tagging the Township and using the hashtag #OroMedonteHometownHockey.

This is a very exciting festival celebrating a historical Canadian sport that is part of so many families and homes in the community,” said Oro-Medonte Mayor Harry Hughes. “On behalf of the Township, I personally encourage Oro-Medonte residents and business owners to use creativity, and decorate their homes and businesses, in preparation for what promises to be a fun and successful outside festival, with COVID-19 health and safety measures in place.”

Rogers Hometown Hockey is a free township-wide, family-friendly event offering interactive hockey-related experiences including live entertainment, NHL alumni meet and greets culinary options, partner experiences, and more.

The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 6 and Sunday, November 7. There will be a live on-site broadcast with Ron MacLean and Tara Slone on Monday, November 8 at 6 p.m. For a complete rundown of festival details and to book your free ticket, visit the Hometown Hockey website.
