The Stanley Cup arrived a few hours later than expected in a small southwestern Ontario community Sunday.

Thousands of people braved the heat in downtown Dunnville to celebrate recent champion Nathan Horton's win and the cup's arrival with a parade.

But Horton told the crowd at around 1:00 p.m. the cup would be arriving late.

Many of the people who had gathered for the event had already left by the time it arrived closer to 2:30 p.m.

The cup was late because it was left behind in Boston.

Horton, a native of nearby Welland, Ont., was an NHL champion with the Boston Bruins this past year.

"I was a little disappointed about not seeing the cup because that was the main reason why I wanted to go, because I haven't seen it yet," said Caledonia resident Amber Eyre, who drove down to see the cup but left at around 1:30 p.m before it arrived.

She's also a fan of the Vancouver Canucks, the team Horton's Bruins beat in the finals. The loss gave her added incentive to go today's event.

"Being so close to almost getting the cup and then not—I just wanted to see it."
