We are in the home stretch for organizers of the High River Kraft Hockeyville bid.

Residents of the Foothills are going to have sore fingers and arms and worn out electronic devices by the end of today, March 31st.

They are trying to hit a goal of over 5 million votes with voting running today until 6:30 p.m. the winning community should be announced just before 9 p.m.

Organizer Melissa Pryor says the response has been amazing.

"The community is gathering," said Pryor. "The buzz is out there I really think we are going to win this."

She adds the best thing about the processthey have been going through is how it has brought the community together.

"Bringing everybody together and celebrating success. If we end up winning Kraft Hockeyville that will be amazing."

The Hat Trick Party starts at 3 p.m. this afternoon with all kinds of activities and voting stations are set up all over town.
