(LAKESHORE, ON) – The Hocktoberfest International Girls Hockey Tournament has announced that it will partner with the Town of Lakeshore and the Lakeshore Lightning to host the 10th annual Hocktoberfest Female Hockey Festival, from October 20 through 22.
Hocktoberfest presents an event that provides a competitive and unique experience for the athletes, an enjoyable weekend for the coaches, and an entertaining weekend for the families who travel from near and far.
“The Town of Lakeshore loves hockey and we look forward to excellent competition over the three days,” said Lakeshore mayor Tom Bain. “I hope everyone involved with the tournament takes the time to enjoy Lakeshore’s amenities and local dining experiences.”
