While NHL hockey is likely not top-of-mind at the end of August, there is some pretty exciting news to share. Rogers Hometown Hockey will be coming to Langley City in January. Our community will be one of 25 communities where Hometown Hockey will be visiting through the 2018-19 NHL season.

The free family-friendly hockey celebration features two days of live entertainment, NHL alumni, local celebrities and hockey-themed activities for all ages. Running from Saturday through to Sunday evening, the festival culminates with an outdoor viewing party of a national NHL game broadcast hosted live. The national match up will be Florida @ Vancouver at 3:30pm. Ron MacLean and Tara Slone will host a pre-game, intermission, and post-game show from Langley City.

Our City staff have been working hard behind the scenes to make this event possible. One of the big pushes from council is to bring more positive activities into our Downtown. While the summer is filling up with these types of activities, the winter doesn’t have as many things going on. Having Hometown Hockey in our community helps expand our programming of public spaces which helps build a healthy and safe community.

Save the date for January 12 and 13, 2019. You will not want to miss this event. More information is available on Langley City’s website.
