Big day for Panorama’s Arena B

Day-long events at Panorama to await final Hockeyville announcement.

NORTH SAANICH — It’s party time at Panorama this Saturday, April 4.

Hockeyville has hit the Peninsula in a big way, following last Saturday’s announcement that Panorama Recreation Centre’s Arena B was named one of two Kraft Hockeyvilles in Canada. That earned them $100,000 in arena upgrades — and the chance at winning an NHL preseason game.

Voting for that lasted until this past Monday night and now the countdown begins again.

An all-day celebration starts at 9 a.m. with the Central Saanich Lions pancake breakfast. From 1 to 5 p.m., Panorama hosts a family-friendly tailgate party with barbecue, road hockey and more.

The announcement of the big Hockeyville winner is expected during Hockey Night in Canada’s first game that afternoon. So be sure to cross your fingers, Saanich Peninsula!
