For the first time ever, Canada's National Ukrainian Festival is partnering with the Dauphin Kings.
On November 21 inside of Credit Union Place, CNUF has joined the Kings to host "Ukrainian Night" a night that has become so special in the past, and this year's edition is guaranteed to be another special night.
Kayla Gillis, President of Canada's National Ukrainian Festival says they were approached a couple of weeks ago by the Kings and the rest clearly is history.
"We think it's a wonderful opportunity not only for CNUF or the Kings but the community as a whole," said Gillis. "We're really looking forward to working with the Club to make this an extremely exciting evening. We can't hold a festival this year so we want to make this like a mini one."
Gillis said it's an honour that the Kings approached them in the first place. In the past, Ryan Rauliuk has hosted "Ukrainian Night"; however, he has said in the past that he will now focus on doing Rangers "Ukrainian Night".
More details will be revealed moving forward on what November 21 will look like exactly, but Gillis did provide a little bit of an insight on what you can look forward to seeing on that day when the Kings hit the ice just more than a month before Christmas.
"We're planning on having a band at the door and having some dancers perform as well," she ended. "We also have some games that we'll be playing in the intermissions. There will also be some pierogi's involved and you will have to eat something."
