King and Talbot streets will be focal point
Memorial Cup signs have been cropping up in London, including this sticker on a Talbot Street sidewalk that points people to the upcoming fun at nearby Budweiser Gardens. Angela Mullins/Metro
What’s that? An amazing hockey tournament just
isn’t good enough for you? Then check out the Memorial Cup’s Fanfest throughout the event. The focal point of the city will be King and Talbot
streets, with a lot to offer for fans outside Budweiser Gardens, whether they have game tickets or not. Every day from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., from Thursday to
May 25, the attractions will celebrate the Ontario Hockey League and the Hockey Hall of Fame outside Bud Gardens and the Covent Garden Market.
Activities will include a family area, and a PlayStation experience with games to try. Organizers are also planning a theatre-style set-up with a video tribute
to the Canadian Hockey League, and, of course, official merchandise on sale and plenty of giveaways. The official entertainment tent will include live bands each night before and after the games. Acts include the Sheridan Band, the Recklaws, Thunderstruck, Soul Sausage, Marcellus Wallace, Doghouse Rose, the Trews and the Rizdales. The same tent will show the Memorial Cup games on eight TV screens, while the Bud Gardens parking lot will have 23 tents for sponsors to host their own events. And expect a special visit by the Clydesdale horses that are featured in Budweiser commercials Thursday through Saturday. Other events surrounding the tournament include the CHL Awards at The Grand Theatre on May 24 and a golf tournament on May 22. Oh, and expect beer to be on sale. Lots of beer.
