Memorial Cup Arrival Ceremony

May 19, 2016 @ 11:30 AM - 2:00 PM

The MasterCard Memorial Cup arrives in Red Deer Thursday, May 19 and it’s first stop will be Downtown! After arriving by helicopter at Central Middle School at approximately 11:30 a.m., the Cup will be transported by military parade to the Cenotaph (in Veteran’s Park) for a short ceremony at noon. To mark the start of the ceremony, a Howitzer cannon will be fired from the Downtown Business Association office at the old train station. It will be loud, but not dangerous.

Following the ceremony, Randi Boulton will take the stage on the Ross Street Patio for the very first performance of the summer season. Free to attend and open to all. We hope to see you Downtown on Thursday, May 19.

Please note: There will be increased noise levels in the area due to the helicopters and howitzer.
