Guelph Storm to host street fest prior to OHL season opener at Sleeman Centre

The Guelph Storm begin their 2022-23 Ontario Hockey League season at home on Friday.

They host the reigning champion Hamilton Bulldogs at the Sleeman Centre with the faceoff set for 7:30 p.m.

But before the puck officially drops on the season, the Storm are inviting fans to come out to their Home Opener Street Fest celebration.

The event gets underway at noon on Macdonell Street between Wyndham and the West Parkade.

The free celebration will include live entertainment, family activities, a kids’ area, downtown restaurant and patios open, and the City of Guelph water wagon.
