City manager Troy Warkentin, decked out in Hometown Hockey garb, and Parks and Recreation Department Head Russ Dyck showed off some of the skates and sticks that now adorn Main Street this week as the city readies for the Rogers Hometown Hockey Festival coming to Steinbach on March 9 and 10.

The weekend will include free outdoor hockey festivities for all ages, including live music and entertainment.

The city is encouraging homeowners and businesses to show off their community hockey spirit too and celebrate Canada’s game by "painting the town red."

Steinbach is one of 25 communities to be in the spotlight for the broadcast this season.
