The Stanley Cup, the Holy Grail of North American hockey, is making a return trip to Sylvan Lake on Sunday.

Resident Colin Fraser, a member of the Stanley Cup winning Los Angeles Kings is hosting the cup’s return after bringing it to the community two summers ago.

He tweeted last Thursday, “Attn: Central AB. Stanley Cup will be in Sylvan Lake Sunday Aug. 17. 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm. More details to come. Please come and check it out!”

The cup will be at Lions Legacy Park (50th Street and 48th Avenue) from 12:30-2:30 p.m. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be moved to The Royal Canadian Legion (4916 50 Avenue), according to a media advisory from Town of Sylvan Lake Communications Officer Joanne Gaudet.

Fraser will make a brief speech about 1 p.m. and then fans will be able to have their photos taken with the cup for a minimum donation of $5 which will go to construction of the future Sylvan Lake NexSource Centre.

The cup’s visit coincides with the final day of the Jazz At The Lake Festival. During it’s visit, the park will be transformed into a community block party presented by Cobb’s Clothing, which will include community bands from all over Central Alberta.
