Skate with Santa this Holiday Season

Kamloops, B.C. – The City of Kamloops invites you to come skate with Santa! For one day only, he's taken a break from the North Pole and will be at the Interior Savings Centre Arena for some fun with the whole family! From 5:00 to 7:00 pm, on Saturday, December 17th, families are welcome to celebrate the holidays with Santa for just a toonie.

There will be extra ice time for public skating over the holidays at City arenas on the following dates:

This year, the City has paired up with Tim Horton's to bring you the annual Tim Horton's Family Skate for FREE!

Skating has great aerobic and cardiovascular benefits but does not have the joint impact that other activities such as running or jogging have. Skating also tones muscles, promotes weight loss, increases mental control such as alertness and is terrific for building self-esteem and confidence. It is an excellent way to get out and have fun with friends and family.
