The colourful fall leaves may signify the end of summer, but The City of Quinte West isn’t losing momentum!
October brings scares galore! Boofest is returning Halloween night for families to enjoy games, candy and even a few frights. This evening of fun will be upstairs at the Duncan MacDonald arena from 5pm – 8pm. Admission is free!
October also brings the launch of ticket sales for the Eastern Canada Cup. 12 teams across five leagues will compete in fast-paced action at the Duncan MacDonald arena November 19-21. Make sure you grab your tickets at the box office. Don’t miss this opportunity to see the hockey stars of tomorrow!
