What's up at the cup

With the Mooseheads off to the final on Sunday, and Guelph and Rouyn-Noranda battling it out in the semifinal game Friday night, there is no need for the proposed tie breaker game tonight. However, other events remain ongoing including Street Fest, and the Hot Stove chats.

Street Fest

A giant street party will take place during the 10-day Memorial Cup.

The stage will be set up at the corner of Prince and Argyle.

Smoking is not allowed, but there will be a beer garden. Street Fest is debit/credit only.

All those attending will be subject to a search. 

Weapons, chairs, coolers, wagons, blankets, towels, tarps, professional cameras with a zoom longer than 2 inches, recording devices that aren't cell phones, fireworks and sparklers, beach balls, Frisbees, laser pointers, skateboards, inline skates, umbrellas, flags, animals that aren't service animals, and backpacks will not be permitted.

Full line-up:

Thursday, May 23 - Roxy and the Underground Soul Sound at 6 p.m. and The Town Heroes at 7 p.m.

Kubota Fan Zone

The Kubota Fan Zone will kick off Friday, May 17 at the Halifax Convention Centre.

Doors open daily from 4 to 7 p.m. throughout the tournament, with the exception of Saturday, May 25, when it will be open to the public from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m.

The free area will feature a variety of family-friendly activities.

"That will house everything from the Hockey Hall of Fame, to the newest and greatest synthetic ice surface, e-sports, the military is offering a really fun obstacle course, Deloitte will be there with their digital offerings," Colburne says.

There will also be a daily Hot Stove event, where Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame President and CEO Bruce Rainnie will interview special guests to talk about their lives in hockey.
