Canes at The Raleigh City Museum

Here’s a cool event for you Caniacs. This letter comes from James Sutton, the director of education and outreach at the Raleigh City Museum.

When the Harford Whalers announced their decision to move south and become the Carolina Hurricanes, a number of people wondered if hockey would survive in a state usually preoccupied with college basketball. However, the last decade has erased all doubts as the ‘Canes have won over crowds and won our state’s first major professional sporting championship.

Join us this Saturday at 2pm as we look back on the last ten years in celebration of the ‘Canes wonderful achievements. John Forslund, the “Voice of the Hurricanes” will wow us with some behind the scenes stories about the team and their marvelous achievements.

Hurricane mascot, Stormy will also be here to entertain kids and sign autographs.

You can also check out the museum’s exhibit The Thrill Of Victory: Sports & Recreation in Raleigh which includes memorabilia from the ‘Canes 2006 Stanley Cup Championship season.

It’s sure to be fun for the whole family!

As always children ages 6 & up are welcomed to attend and all children must be accompanied by an adult.

Please join us for the fun!!
