Memorial Cup a big win for Windsor's economy says tourism agency
'Tens of millions' flowed into local businesses during the 10-day tournament
The Memorial Cup was a big win for Windsor's economy too, according to the area's tourism agency.
Tens of millions of dollars flowed into bars, restaurants and hotels over the 10-day tournament according to Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island CEO Gordon Orr, who added he expects there will be long-term impacts too.
"We know first-hand when people come and experience our area for the first time, they go back to their respective cities and their families and friends and they tell their story about a positive, memorable experience they had in Windsor, and that's going to be the best marketing of all," he explained.
A parade to celebrate the Spitfire's win will run down Ouellette Avenue Wednesday evening starting at 6 p.m.
