The Memorial Cup officially arrives today.

The Canadian Hockey League's biggest prize will be accompanied by the Halifax Mooseheads as it arrives in Halifax Harbour aboard HMCS Glace Bay.

The public is invited to come down to the Halifax Waterfront at 5:30 p.m. to welcome the Cup in the Cunard Lot at 1325 Lower Water Street.

The President Cup winning Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, the Ontario Hockey League champion Guelph Storm and the Western Hockey League's top team Prince Albert Raiders are all expected to be there, along with sponsors, and a number of special guests, including NHL alumni.

Argyle Street will shut down between Prince and Blowers streets to vehicles starting at 9 a.m. and it will stay that way until 1 a.m. Monday, May 27.

Several Memorial Cup related events will be taking place along the stretch, including Street Fest, which will feature nearly 20 Nova Scotian musical acts over 10 days, including The Trews, Joel Plaskett Emergency, Matt Mays, Ria Mae, Adam Baldwin and Sloan.

The street will remain fully open to pedestrians, and all stores and restaurants will be open for business.
