A sold-out Moose Jaw Events Centre and a jam-packed Mae Wilson Theatre were just some of the highlights this weekend in Canada’s Most Notorious City.
On Saturday night, the Moose Jaw Health Foundation filled the Mae Wilson Theatre for its first-ever Healthcare Rocks concert featuring AC/DC tribute band Hells Bells.
Meanwhile, down the road at the Moose Jaw Events Centre, it was standing-room only with just under 5,000 fans as the Moose Jaw Warriors took on Connor Bedard and the Regina Pats.
Moose Jaw and District Chamber of Commerce CEO Rob Clark said Moose Jaw will definitely see a positive economic spinoff from the major events.
“I always say retail follows retail and industry follows industry and events follow events. So, I think it's a great opportunity for Moose Jaw to continue to build on this and actually promote it,” Clark said.
Clark added that the city seems to be gaining momentum when it comes to hosting events in the city.
“There are more than two or three or four things happening in the community and we're on a good run right now,” he said.
In addition to the Warriors game and Healthcare Rocks, the Moose Jaw Kinsmen Flying Fins hosted junior provincial at the Kinsmen Sportsplex over the weekend and the Moose Jaw Events Centre is playing host to the Canadian National Wheelchair Curling Championships this week.
