Nanton will see it's population expand this week as they're hosting the Alberta Bantam "C" Hockey Provincials.

Davina Comstock with the Organizing Committee says it's one of the bigger events to come to Nanton for a while.

"We have over 120 kids coming to town, which means about 120 families probably visiting the Town of Nanton. Nanton hasn't hosted a Provincials in forever, I tried to do some research, but couldn't find out when the last time was, so it's a really big deal."

She says they're excited to show off the Town and for the local business and restaurants who will see a much needed shot in the arm from all the visitors.

Fellow Organizer Shanda McTighe says fans who want to take in the event can do so on the cheap.

"We have $20 event passes, so that gets you in and out all weekend as much as you want. Or we do also have day pricing if you want to pop down for the day. I believe it's $7 or $10 dollars for the day."

The tournament runs Thursday, March 14 through Sunday, March 17 at the Tom Hornecker Arena.
