The Kitchener Rangers have unveiled a commemorative jersey to celebrate 50 years of Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest.
Oktoberfest will be the theme of Kitchener's home against Saginaw at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, October 5.
There will be a ceremonial puck drop, and other game day celebrations.
"The jersey features a crest detailing the founding date of Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest. In 1969, the civic festival that celebrates our local German Canadian heritage became an annual community event." the Rangers said in a news release.
Proceeds of a jersey auction will benefit the Food Bank of Waterloo Region, as well as other groups connected to Oktoberfest.
The game-day silent auction starts at 6 p.m. that day and wraps up after the game.
Some jerseys will be available online too. That auction will begin at noon on October 5 and run until noon on October 14.
