The Niagara-on-the-Lake Soccer Club closed off the 2023 season with its annual end-of-year festival, sponsored by Hummel Properties.
On Saturday kids from all age groups from U6 to U14 took over the Virgil fields with games starting at 9:30 a.m. and finishing at 3:30 p.m.
The end-of-year festival coincided with the NOTL Wolves Minor Hockey equipment swap at the Meridian Credit Union Arena, where children could recycle unneeded sports gear or grab some pre-loved threads for the upcoming season.
