Memorable Moments: Fredericton

This week we’re in Fredericton, New Brunswick, a beautiful city full of warmth and love. Every day brought more memorable moments and more great experiences.

To kick off the weekend, the team and Hometown Hockey set out to be part of Fredericton Random Acts of Kindness Day. This included a stop at Devon Middle School, a walk around downtown with free hot chocolate and a few puck drops at some special games.


On to Saturday where the day started and ended on great notes. It was great to see so much hockey support – especially from the canine fans!

A trip to the Fredericton Boyce Farmers Market was necessary, where donairs and fresh OJ were sampled.

OMG DONAIRS!!!! #HometownHockey #Fredericton

Saturday would not have been complete without the third puck drop of the weekend at the Guns and Hoses Charity Hockey Game in support of juvenile diabetes and breast cancer. The Fredericton Fire Department took on the Fredericton Police Department in an epic tournament of skill.

On to Sunday, where even more people turned out to show their love of hockey.  Darcy Tucker, Brad Brown and Mike Eagles told stories on our Scotiabank Hot Stove.

And Paz delighted the crowd.

And of course, Ron MacLean was presented with a special local gift made from recycled fire hose.
Thanks Fredericton for the warm hospitality and open arms. Next week we continue east to Sydney, Nova Scotia.
