It's the most successful tour of its kind in North America and raises money for charity in each city it visits. The Oldtimer's Hockey Challenge will also feature laser shows, Crazy Claude - the trumpeter, the Call to Recycle Tykes and international renowned Black Ice Synchronized Team as part of a memorable family fun event.
