The Exchange BIZ is holding a live broadcast of the NHL home opener between the Winnipeg Jets and the Carolina Hurricanes. The game will be shown in HD and projected onto a 15-foot screen. All Jets fans are invited to come and watch the team take flight and take on the Hurricanes.
“This will be our 2nd Annual Jets Home Opener Live at the Cube,” said Brian Timmerman, Executive Director of the Exchange District BIZ.
“We are so excited to welcome fans to Old Market Square to share in the festivities. Not only are we going to create a “True North” experience right here in the Exchange, we are proud to say that all proceeds will go to a great cause, KidSport Winnipeg.”
Hockey fans are encouraged to bundle up, don their jerseys and bring their lawn chairs to experience this one of a kind outdoor event.
In addition to the live screening, there will be popcorn and hot chocolate for sale and fire pits to warm up around. There will also be amazing prize giveaways between periods from Exchange businesses like Chosabi, Aveda, Bodegoes, King + Bannatyne, Bailey’s Restaurant and Lounge and so much more!
Following the game, or between periods, fans are invited to visit nearby Exchange District venues for great food and drink.
This live screening event is a partnership between the Exchange District BIZ, Bodegoes Restaurant, King + Bannatyne and Red River College.
