TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - The Hockey Hall of Frame displayed the Stanley Cup at the Walleye Winterfest Monday.
“All the young kids have come through and got their picture, and a lot of bigger kids have been looking for some of their favorite teams. We're kind of in Red Wing country, but we've seen a lot of Black Hawk Fans, Penguins, Bruins, Rangers. It's just great to be here in Toledo for Winterfest. Everywhere we go in the world with the Cup it brings a lot of smiles and joy to everybody and no exceptions here in Toledo,” said Hockey Hall of Fame Keeper of the Cup Mike Bolt.
Fans who lined up to take a free picture with the Cup even received a free digital download.
“We knew the Stanley Cup was here, so we wanted a picture with the Stanley Cup. That was very cool,” said Winterfest-goers Ernie and Dean Dieball.
Spectators and parents were also on hand to watch youth hockey games.
“It was really awesome, it was cold out there. I think he was in a little bit of pain out there when he'd get hit, but I think he had a good time, he played very well,” said Monica Steele, parent of a hockey-player.
Steele and other parents said they plan to come to more Winterfest events this week.
“It was a lot of fun, playing outdoors was great, it was awesome. We'll probably come down to some of the other events, too,” said Winterfest-goers Brian and Cameron Parcells.
