Dog Run pre-game party is a go before Niagara IceDogs game tonight

If you are headed downtown St.Catharines tonight, get ready for a party.

To welcome the Niagara IceDogs home after two tough overtime losses to the Hamilton Bulldogs in playoff action, fans will gather downtown for the 'Dog Run.'

The pre-game party will be held from 6pm-7pm at William Street and St. Paul Street – in the area of the bridge to the Meridian Centre.

On a more serious note, donations for the families impacted by the Humboldt tragedy will be collected at tonight's Niagara IceDogs game.

A moment of silence will be held to remember the 15 lives lost.

Fans are also encouraged to sign large banners that will be sent to Humboldt in a show of support.

Tickets are available for tonight's game starting at 17 dollars.

Fans can buy their tickets online, head down to the box office at the Meridian Centre, the Pen Centre Customer Service Desk, or the Seaway Mall desk.
