Share

NHL stars are preparing to hit the ice in Wasaga Beach this weekend.

Hometown hero and Stanley Cup champion Jason Arnott and friends held a meet and greet with fans ahead of Saturday's afternoon sold-out hockey game at the new Wasaga Stars Arena.

The alumni game kicks off a week of festivities, which includes an ice show featuring a pair of Olympic figure skaters.

Midweek, junior hockey teams will stop at the new facility, showcasing what the following season will feel like as Wasaga welcomes a new franchise of exciting hockey to town.

The "Breaking The Ice Festival," celebrating the town's 50th year, closes next weekend with a concert on Saturday by Canadian rock star Burton Cummings.

On Sunday, it's Jim Cuddy and Blue Rodeo.
