Nathan Horton Bringing the Cup Home: Dunnville, Ontario, to Celebrate with Parade, Beer Garden

Hortontowel Nathan Horton is headed home.

And he's bringing the Stanley Cup with him.

Yes, I know Nathan and his family are residents of Broward County.

But Horton will spend his time with the Cup in the place where it all began for him.

Officials in Dunnville, Ontario -- which is located not far from Niagara Falls -- are obviously excited about their hometown hero coming back with the Cup later this month. A parade and town party are scheduled for July 19.

Word is there will be a parade through the small town with Horton offering an idea that fans can get a picture with the Cup for a cool $5. The money will go to the local hospital. Nice touch.

After the Cup gets its welcome in Dunnville, the Hortons will take it up the road to Toronto.

Dunnville, some of you may recall from my story a few years ago, is also the hometown to former Panthers coach Pete DeBoer.
