The second annual Touchdown Atlantic event took place in Moncton on Sunday afternoon.

The kickoff was a memorable one for fans in Moncton, as two helicopters flew over the stadium just as the football flew in the air.

This is the second time the CFL has scheduled a regular season game in Atlantic Canada in as many years.

Event organizers say they hope the CFL sees the potential in growing the league in Atlantic Canada.
