The Stanley Cup comes to Lac La Biche
For Front of the Line Passes: email@example.com
April 7 marks a very special day for residents in Lac La Biche: from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m, hockey's holy grail will be on display at the Scotiabank branch, with plenty of photo opportunities and prize giveaways throughout the day.
The event comes via Scotiabank's ‘Celebration of Hockey', a cross-county tour that is visiting communities throughout Canada that allows citizens the opportunity to spend time with hockey's most famous trophy. Lac La Biche was chosen by a selection committee based on their hockey history and the prevalence of hockey in the community.
“Whether you play hockey or cheer from the stands, the Stanley Cup is a cultural symbol that all Canadians can proudly identify with,” said Lacey Chicoine, Lac La Biche Scotiabank branch manager.
There is no admission cost to view the cup, although time is limited. The first 500 people that come out to Scotiabank on Saturday will get their picture professionally taken with the cup for free.
“We are huge hockey fans here in Lac La Biche and I know the community will be eager to get up close and personal with the Cup,” said Peter Kirylchuk, the mayor of Lac La Biche. “We are thankful to the Scotiabank Celebration of Hockey for making it happen.”
