Ottawa, Ontario – Canadians from coast to coast will have the opportunity to celebrate the 50th anniversary of ringette when Ringette Canada rolls out a 30-day, 15 city roadshow later this year. The roadshow will begin in mid-October and travel across the country hosting a variety of ringette events along the way.

All tour stops will include appearances by mascots, Samantha Belle and Junior Jacks; a skills event; a Come Try Ringette session; a Ringette Activation Festival (including target shooting, trivia and prizes) and a locally tailored ringette event that the rest of the country can tune in and watch via webcast.

The roadshow kicks off in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island on October 16th and will then make its way to southern Ontario. Following a short one-week break, the roadshow will pick up again in British Columbia and then head towards Manitoba, where it will conclude on November 9th.
