Two days of family fun are planned at Arena 2 at the end of this month, as the City of Quesnel hosts its annual Ice Palace event.
There will be skating amongst the trees, a toboggan hill, arts and crafts, painting on the ice, a fish pond and more Friday, Dec. 28 and Saturday, Dec. 29 from 1-5 p.m. Admission is $4 per person, and it is free for children aged two and younger. Bring your own skates and helmets.
The City hosts the Ice Palace each year, although the event used to take place before Christmas. Recreation service clerk Lori Smetaniuk says the Ice Palace is taking place after Christmas this year to coincide with school holidays.
“We usually get about 200 to 400 people coming through, so it’s a big event,” says Smetaniuk.
