There will be a mini hockey Hall of Fame, a Formula One race car, and a youth area.

Eric Staal stated “It is heartwarming and humbling to see the community get firmly behind the competition and all of the activities across the course and in the city. This is home. We were raised here and although we spend most of our year away playing, we never feel as good as when we are in Thunder Bay.

Monday is the celebrity Pro-Am with lots of excitement.
