Another small Canadian town is about to become the center of the hockey universe this weekend.
Conception Bay South, home to roughly 20,000 people in the province of Newfoundland, is set to host the 2011 Kraft Hockeyville event. The activities get under way this Saturday, when NHL alumni run clinics at Robert French Memorial Stadium.
By winning a competition that received a record 297 entries (Conception Bay South received more than 995,000 votes to claim to grand prize), CBS received a check for $100,000 from Kraft that will go toward upgrading its local rink. But that's just the beginning.
The Stanley Cup Event, NHL Alumni autograph signing sessions, a community barbeque (courtesy of Bull's-Eye Barbecue Sauce), a fireworks show and a special guest appearance by CBC's "Hockey Night in Canada's" Ron MacLean, Don Cherry
and Cassie Campbell-Pascall highlight this weekend's festivities in Conception Bay South, all of which are free to attend.
