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.
