In a true hockey nation, the City of Vancouver is setting up two large screens to broadcast the Stanley Cup Finals between the Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins.
The first screen will be setup to compliment the existing one outside the CBC building on Hamilton Street between Georgia and Robson Streets.
The second screen will be placed on Granville Street, also between Georgia and Robson Streets. Food carts and portable washroom facilities are also being made available to make sure fans are well fed and looked after.
Georgia Street will be closed off between Richards and Cambie Streets
There’s also a display on the south-side of the Pan Pacific Hotel at Canada Place.
The Burnaby Public Library just west of Metrotown at the corner of Willingdon Avenue and Kingsborough Street is also bringing in a big screen for fans to watch.
If you don’t feel like travelling into the city for the party, Surrey is also showing the series at Central City Plaza on 10153 King George Boulevard. The City of Surrey web site mentions the first four games (which means they’re favouring a Canucks sweep).
TransLink will be offering increased SkyTrain and bus service to help get fans to and from the party zones.
All locations are free to attend.
Game 1 is on Wednesday at 5:00 pm PDT.
