The 50th annual Transcona Hi Neighbour Festival is slated to have some special events for the occasion.
In addition to Streetheart performing at the Archambault Pavilion at 9:30 p.m. on June 6, the festival will welcome former Philadelphia Flyers scout Ray Frost, who scouted Bobby Clarke and will have his Stanley Cup ring in tow.
Frost will be in attendance as part of a special ball hockey tournament in support of Clara Hughes’ journey to raise mental health awareness. The Hughes Who of Ball Hockey street tournament will be held at 131 Victoria Ave. E. on June 7 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Each team will be guaranteed four 30-minute games as part of the four-on-four tournament.
Entry is $150 per team, and registration can be done by contacting Yvonne at firstname.lastname@example.org or 204-224-2600. Proceeds will support the Manitoba chapter of the Canadian Mental Health Association. More information on Hughes’ campaign is available at http://clarasbigride.bell.ca/en
