Anyone feeling sad about the closeout of summer can be assured that fun in the Lakeland doesn’t end with August. In celebration of Canada’s 150th year, Lakeland Credit Union is organizing a Spirit of Canada Block Party on Saturday, September 16th in the Cold Lake Credit Union branch parking lot, and on Sunday, September 17th in the Bonnyville Credit Union branch parking lot.
The event includes a 3 on 3 street hockey tournament, an appearance by “That Don Cherry,” a Canadian themed photo booth, a caesar booth, an apology booth, a kids’ zone, and tasty fare from local food trucks and vendors.
Street hockey teams can register in the corporate, recreational, or youth categories. Registration fees are $150 for a corporate team, $100 for a recreational team, and $50 for a youth team. Winning teams in each category will be awarded a cash prize and a donation to a charity of their choosing. There are also prizes for the best team uniform. Registration deadline is August 31, so contact Lakeland Credit Union today to get your team in! The event is free to attend and open to everyone. Food booths are pay-per-order.
