The wait is over as two-day Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour begins on Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. at the T.G. Smith Centre and continues Sunday from noon until the conclusion of the outdoor NHL broadcast viewing party.

Broadcast hosts Ron MacLean and Tara Slone will be on site for the festivities, which also include meet-and-greet opportunities with NHL alumni Dave Ellett and Colton Orr, as well as live local music entertainment from The Boy and The Sea on Saturday, with Del Barber and John Grolman to follow on Sunday.

Sunday’s broadcast kicks off with a pre-game show live from the Sportsnet Mobile Studio beginning at 5:30 p.m., followed by the game between the Winnipeg Jets and Washington Capitals.

Street closures are now in effect near the arena, on Elmdale Street and Lumber Avenue, until Monday at 1 a.m.

Steinbach is one of 25 stops made on the Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour this season.
