2019 Christmas Shinny & Skating

It’s that time of year once again to get your skates sharpened, sticks taped, helmets at the ready and start thinking about hitting the ice over the holidays!

The ice has been booked once again for three days over the course of the holidays: Friday the 27th, Saturday the 28th and Monday the 30th  

We’ll be at the Fenelon Falls Community Centre – Ice Pad for two of the days and we’re going “old school” at the Bobcaygeon rink (bring your woollies) on the Saturday. please note that there are different times for all three days.

  • Friday December 27: 11:30-1:30 PM (Fenelon Falls Ice Pad)

  • Monday December 30: 2:00PM-4:00PM (Fenelon Falls Ice Pad)

The City of Kawartha Lakes has been increasing the rental rate on an annual basis for the last few years (plus weekend rates are charged at the premium level) as such we are having to raise the family rate to $25/day, we can keep the rate for singles at $10/day.

Come out and enjoy skating with your friends and neighbours on one, two or all of these dates!
