CANADIAN SLO-PITCH CHAMPIONSHIP
Moncton, N.B. - Aug 11 – 17
Moncton was founded on the site of an Acadian settlement known as “Le Coude” (The Bend), located at a bend of the Petitcodiac River, and likely settled around 1735. After the Deportation of the Acadians in 1755, the settlement remained empty for over 10 years. Over its history, the main industries were shipbuilding and railways. Moncton was also one of the first officially bilingual cities in Canada. Known as the Hub of the Maritimes, our city has, over the years, welcomed major events such as the World Junior Track and Field Championship, Women’s FIFA World Cup of Soccer, as well as hosting music concerts by the Rolling Stones and U2. Local tourists enjoy visiting many attractions in the area such as, The Hopewell Rocks, Parlee Beach, Fundy National Park, and Magnetic Hill & Magic Mountain Water Park.
