12th Annual Woodstock Day At The Rogers Centre

Over 1,000 Woodstonians traveled to the Rogers Centre on Saturday April 23rd to watch the Toronto Blue Jays host the Oakland Athletics.

WOODSTOCK - Over 1,000 people from Woodstock are heading to the Jays game on Saturday April 23rd for the 12th annual Woodstock Day at the Rogers Centre.

Communications with the City of Woodstock Brad Jansen says Mayor of East Zorra Tavistock Don McKay will be bringing the cow statues once again and displaying them with a banner outside of the dome to let everyone know the Dairy Capital of Canada is in the house.

"We are the dairy capital of Canada and it gets a lot of interest from those outside of Woodstock and it kind of peaks their curiosity to ask why are there cow statues outside of the Rogers Centre and it really kind of represents are brand and we are in the area."

Jannsen adds Woodstock will be featured throughout the game.

"We will be throwing out the first pitch, a young lad will be throwing out the first pitch and we do that every year, we have a contest to see who get the honour for kids between the ages of 5 and 14, we will be recognizing a community champion too, which will be a special presentation which is usually done with a Blue Jay player."

The community champion this year is 88 year old Gord Fletcher who has attended all 12 Woodstock Days at the Rogers Centre.
