Thunder Bay Northstars for the 2014/2015 Season

Thunder Bay Northstars for the 2014/2015 Season

The Thunder Bay North Stars Junior A hockey team has roots in local Junior A hockey dating back to the early 1920’s with such teams as the Fort William War Veterans (Memorial Cup champs in 1922) and the Port Arthur North Stars.
After the fall of the mighty Thunder Bay Flyers (who played in the USHL) in 2000, there was a rebirth of Junior A hockey in Thunder Bay and surrounding area with the establishment of the Superior International Junior Hockey League in 2001. The SIJHL originally had 5 teams, including the Thunder Bay Wolves, which in their second year were purchased by the Fort William First Nation and a group of 7 businessmen from the Band, thus becoming the Fort William North Stars. Gerald Bannon eventually became the sole owner and operator of the team from 2003 – 2010.

In October 2010 the Fort William North Stars folded. Their assets, roster, personnel and name were transferred to a new ownership group comprised of local Thunder Bay business people. The team’s name was changed to the Thunder Bay North Stars to reflect that they are the only Thunder Bay team remaining in the now 7 team SIJHL. The North Stars are truly now “Thunder Bay’s team”.

Late summer of 2012, the Thunder Bay North Stars saw new ownership again, with Doug Gunsinger at the helm.

The North Stars are the only team in SIJHL history to have won the Dudley Hewitt Cup and play in the Royal Bank Cup. That was accomplished by the 2005-2006 team which hosted the Dudley that season. They won silver at the RBC that year.

42nd Annual Folklore Festival

Rock 94 Presents

The Thunder Bay Multicultural Association
FOLKLORE FESTIVAL 2015, our 42nd Folklore Celebration!
For more information,
Adults $5, Seniors/Students $3, Children 4-12 $1, Under 4 FREE

"Travel the World in 48 Hours” at the 42nd Folklore Festival 2015, May 2nd and 3rd at the Fort William Gardens in Thunder Bay, Ontario presented by the Thunder Bay Multicultural Association.  Tantalizing international foods, incredible entertainment, “shop-the-world” booths, exhibits, an activity-packed Children’s Area, and local artists on site await you.  The largest and most colourful event of the year will take visitors on a “Trip Around the World” in two fun-filled days allowing them to experience the magnificent sights, sounds and flavours which the various ethnocultural and Aboriginal communities bring to our country. 
The Festival showcases the diverse cultural heritage of Thunder Bay. More than 20 regions of the world are represented by no less than 40 different ethnocultural and Aboriginal groups.  Arriving visitors are greeted by Goodwill Ambassadors in traditional costumes and the majestic fanfare of flags of the World waving above the arena, leading to our Folklore Festival main stage, the largest in Thunder Bay, where culture and traditions will be brought to life in full and intricate colour and excitement. Imagine the spectacle as the Thunder Bay Chinese-Canadian Association opens the Festival with its traditional Lion Dance.  In the hours and days that follow, many hearts will be stolen during performances by junior groups like the little Le Stelle Alpine Italian dancers, the Scottish dancers and the Bangladeshi performers.  The richness of our First Nations people will be shared with visitors through impressive and meaningful dances.  You are sure to feel the rejuvenation of your own youth as you enjoy the presentations by the Celtic Rhythms Irish Dancers, the Chaban, and Zorya Ukrainian Dance companies, the Filipino performers, and the Portuguese Folklore Dancers.  The beauty of the Middle Eastern Belly Dancers, and the Kiikurit Finnish Folk Dancers will enchant visitors. Back this year are the popular "Kaminari Wan Taiko", traditional Japanese Drummers.  You will marvel at the resounding sounds of The Pipes and Drums of Thunder Bay and the MacGillivray Pipe Band. The World Dance Centre will take us on a dancing journey around the world and these are only SOME of the incredible entertainers who will grace the Festival Stage.
Displays and exhibits circle the stage and surrounding areas allowing visitors to “shop the World” and see traditions come alive as they view costumes, artifacts, video displays, visual artists working on site, and meet the people who proudly share Canada’s heritages.  Local artists including Kevin Belmore, Greg Zelinski, to name a few, will share their works of art, and exhibitors will have treasures from Africa, India, Ecuador and beyond for visitors to purchase and take home.
Tantalizing aromas call visitors to the Curling Club where the temptations of Filipino shiskababs, Caribbean Jerk chicken, Greek souvlaki, Polish cabbages rolls, Portuguese, Lebanese, Bangladeshi, Indian and Thai cuisine, rich pastries from Italy and beyond, are just a few of the many culinary delights visitors can savour in the Food Booth area.  Traditional favourites from The Aboriginal Arts & Heritage of Thunder Bay and Salween (Burmese foods) can be topped off with a glass of imported Italian wine, a Red Stripe beer, an Espresso, or a host of international favourites.  There is just time enough to gather together your exotic feast before heading back to the main stage area to experience the amazing leaps of the Ukrainian dance ensembles, the incredible talents of entertainers of all ages and the wonder that is Folklore Festival.
Enjoy international “Dinner and Dancing” Saturday night with “The Imbayakunas” from Ecuador and Toronto playing "Music of the Andes" and "HOT Latin rhythms" for the best prices in town (the Food Court with International Beers and Wines is open until 11pm). 
Canada’s wealth lies in the richness that our Aboriginal and ethnic communities bring to our country.  The traditions, the dances, the songs, the foods have made the Canadian mosaic a treasure, which will long endure.  The Thunder Bay Multicultural Association warmly and proudly invites everyone to be part of this Annual Canadian multicultural celebration.
Festival hours are Saturday, 12 noon to 11 pm and Sunday 12 noon to 7 pm.  The Festival is fully accessible.  A Pre-Festival display will be at Intercity Shopping Mall on April 4 with the Folklore Festival Press Conference including Entertainment held the week prior to the Festival on April 25 also at Intercity.  Programs including the Sponsors, Entertainment Schedule, Food and Exhibit Booths will be distributed.  Our website operates year round promoting the Festival and our Sponsors.  Opening ceremonies, with our “Parade of Nations”, dignitaries, the Thunder Bay Multicultural Association Board of Directors, and Sponsors, will be held at 2 pm Saturday May 2 on the Main Stage. 
More than 1,000 volunteers assist in planning, and preparing the site decorations, stage, food and exhibit booths, the Children’s Area, promotion and organization.  Because of these special people, Festival visitors have the unique opportunity to experience this exquisite multicultural mosaic, the largest presentation in our Region.
