  • Dec. 22, 2015 9:00 a.m.

Experience the wonder of the season on ice during public skate sessions at the Comox Valley Regional District’s (CVRD) sports centre Dec. 23 and 24.

Holiday elves have been busy behind the scenes to set the stage for an enchanting, jovial skate.

“We are looking forward to offering these festive skate sessions to the public this year,” said CVRD marketing specialist Robyn Butler.

“Arena one will literally be transformed into a magical outdoor landscape with trees, twinkling lights and other winter holiday trimmings. It’s a great way to take a break from your hectic holiday schedule and celebrate the season with family and friends in a healthy, active way.”

An “everyone welcome” session is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 23 from 6 to 8 p.m. followed by an adult only skate (16 years and up) from 8:30 to 10 p.m. Two more “everyone welcome” sessions are scheduled on Dec. 24 from 9 to 11:30 a.m. and from 12:30 to 3 p.m. Regular admission rates apply and skate rentals are available.

Attendees of all ages will be delighted by visits from the jolly man in red, plus other popular characters associated with the holiday season.

The concession will be open to purchase a hot beverage or snack.

A smartphone “selfie station” will be set among a festive backdrop with opportunities to win courtesy skate and swim passes.

Participants are encouraged to snap some selfies and share on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #CVWinterWonderland.
