For immediate release
Logistics For Brad Richards Day in Murray Harbour
Development and Technology
A high volume of traffic is expected in the area on the day of the event and, as a result, no one except village residents will be allowed to take a vehicle into the community. There will be no parking permitted on Main Street. Any vehicles parked on Main Street will be towed.
Roads leading into the village will be closed and a detour will be in place. People will be bused into Murray Harbour. Parking lots will be set up on the south side of the village, and buses will travel between the parking lots and the community on a continuous basis. A $2 parking fee will be charged. Proceeds will support the Murray Harbour Fire Department.
The parade, which will feature Brad and the trophies, will begin at 11 a.m. at the old service station and will travel through the Village, ending at the Community Centre. Following the parade, the Conn Smythe, Lady Byng and Stanley Cup trophies will be on display at the local ball field. Visitors will be able to view the trophies and take photos. Please bring your own camera. However, because of the number of people who are expected, the organizing committee asks that there be no requests for autographs. Visitors are also reminded that lawn chairs are permitted along the parade route, but not at the ball field.
Throughout the day, refreshments will be available at the ballfield, as well as souvenir shirts and local arts and crafts. Live entertainment by local musicians and fun activities for children will also be a part of the day’s events.
The festivities will take place rain or shine.
