We’re throwing a party! This will be our first ever event at the arena! Join us for a free holiday skate that features hot chocolate and hot dogs courtesy of the new Pandora Save on Foods, prizes, a live DJ, kids crafts & activities courtesy of SUPPLY Victoria and donated supplies from Thrift/Craft, a holiday themed photo booth with TrueStock, and of course… free skating! (Ice time 6:30-7:45pm)

Event details:
Save on Foods Memorial Arena (use back entrance – parking lot off Pembroke Street)
Friday, December 13, 2019

Event schedule:
6:00-6:30pm – doors open, head to the rental booth to collect your free skate and helmet rental!
6:30-7:45pm – ice time
Throughout the event enjoy the free food, craft stations, button making, the photo booth, music, prize giveaways, and engagement stations!

Skate rentals, including helmets and skating supports for new skaters are available free of charge. We’re also expecting Marty the Marmot, Harvey the HarbourCat, and the Superheroes of Victoria to join us during our ice time. Are you new to skating? They can skate with you! 

Not only is this a super fun, free holiday skate, but this is also an opportunity to tell us what neighbourhood topics and issues are priorities for you (in North Park we don’t skate around the issues!) What matters to you about the neighbourhood where you live?

This event takes place on ancestral territories of the Songhees First Nation. We acknowledge and thank the Songhees First Nations community for allowing us to live, work and spend time on their lands.

Registration is appreciated to inform our food and beverage purchasing, but not required!
