Bentley Generals fans can salute their heroes in style Saturday.

A parade honouring the Allan Cup champions will start and finish at the Bentley Arena. The parade, with team members riding in an assortment of sports and collector cars, will begin between 4:15 and 4:30 p.m., Generals manager Jeff McInnis said Wednesday, and will be followed by a reception at 6 p.m., also at the Arena.

The reception is open to the public and hot dogs, hamburgers, pop and coffee will be available free of charge.

“We decided to hold the reception at the Arena because we don’t know if we’ll have 100 people or 1,000 people attend,” said McInnis, who added that the post-parade event will feature speeches and the opportunity for photos of the Allan Cup and the other (McKenzie Cup, Alberta senior AAA hockey championship and Chinook League) trophies captured by the Generals this season.

A dance, also open to the public — including children — and slated to start at 8 p.m., will follow the reception, with a beer garden to be set up in the corner of the Arena.

“We want the entire day to be a family event,” said McInnis.
