Hockey fans should probably mark their calendars for Nov. 25 and 26 when the Rogers Hometown Hockey Tours visits Oakville.

The fun-filled hockey celebration is scheduled to rock the vicinity of 184 Church St., from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday (Nov. 25) and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., on Sunday (Nov. 26).

The tour is described as the ultimate NHL fan experience with Sportsnet hosts Ron MacLean and Tara Slone travelling across the country and making stops in 24 communities to celebrate local hockey stories and the game’s biggest stars.

“Along with the rest of council, I’m looking forward to what will no doubt be a weekend full of entertainment for hockey fans of all ages,” said Oakville Mayor Rob Burton.

“What a great opportunity to showcase our community’s heritage, hockey history and unique stories with the rest of Canada.”

As one of the communities chosen as a stop for the tour Oakville will host a two-day outdoor hockey festival featuring local celebrities, NHL alumni, free activities, games, interactive experiences and live entertainment for all ages.

The festival will end with an outdoor viewing party on Sunday (Nov. 26) where MacLean and Slone will broadcast live from the Sportsnet Mobile Studio while the Vancouver Canucks take on the New York Rangers.
