ANDREA HORWATH TALKS IMPACT OF THE GREY CUP FESTIVAL
The Canadian Football League and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats laid out their plans for the 110th Grey Cup game and Festival in Hamilton on August 15th, at the Grey Cup Launch Party at the Art Gallery of Hamilton.
Hamilton Tiger-Cats play-by-play announcer RJ Broadhead sat down with Hamilton Mayor Andrea Horwath to discuss this year’s Grey Cup festivities.
Mayor Andrea Horwath is currently serving her first term as Mayor of Hamilton and spoke about growing up in a family of Ticats fans.
“I grew up in a Ticat fan family. You know some people might say that was from your dad, but in fact, it was from my mom and grandmother. They had season’s tickets for so many years. So when my grandma couldn’t go, I would come to the games with my mom and when my mom couldn’t go, I would go to the games with my grandma.”
Horwath’s connection to the team runs deep and she even spent time working for the team. “I also worked in the concessions for a little while as a kid,” said the Mayor.
When asked what she would tell someone that’s never been to Hamilton, Horwath spoke about the spirit of the city.
“No matter what you’re looking for you can find it in Hamilton, You can find it Hamilton.”
This year’s Grey Cup Festival runs from November 13-19, centralized in downtown Hamilton, Ontario.
