District of Invermere councillor and Coumnbia Valley Rockies Hockey Club president Al Miller says  cattle and horse trailers will likely be parking on the street and organizers want to close the road for safety reasons. The road may also close in advance of the day, when participants are unloading and setting up at the venue.

The event will take place on two vacant lots south of the Invermere Curling Club.
