Halloween Skate and Swim

Kamloops, B.C. - This Halloween, get out and take in some family fun with the Fabulously Freaky Halloween Event at the Valleyview Arena. From 3:30 - 6:30 pm on Friday, October 28, the Valleyview Arena is hosting a $2 Toonie Skate. Families can come out and skate in costume. Don't forget that the City of Kamloops is promoting its 'Be Smart and Wear a Helmet' campaign for public skating. At random times throughout the fall and winter seasons, participants wearing helmets will be rewarded with a free skate pass.

Make a splash at a Wacky Halloween Swim at the Westsyde Pool and Community Centre on Wednesday, October 26th, from 6:00 - 8:30 pm. On Saturday, October 29th, 2011, the Canada Games Aquatic Centre is hosting a Spooky Halloween Swim from 6:00 - 8:00 pm. Both events cost regular admission to the pool.
