[ARCHIVED] Rink Two at Complex to Transform into Cariboo Winterland

Cariboo Winterland Schedule

For two weeks, rink two at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex will be transformed into a Cariboo Winterland.

From Sunday, December 19 to Saturday, January 2, all public skating including Family, Everyone Welcome and Parent and Tot on Ice will take place in a picturesque winter scene featuring plenty of Christmas trees, holiday lights, all your favourite holiday character blow-ups, decorations and more.

“We had immensely positive feedback last year and we are excited to bring our second annual Cariboo Winterland back that will be even bigger, brighter and better than the first,” Manager of Recreation Kaitlyn Atkinson said.

Kicking off the festivities on Sunday, December 19 will be a free Everyone Welcome Skate from 7:15 pm to 9 pm, with free hot chocolate and coffee donated by Tim Hortons.

Family Skates then run each day beginning on Monday, December 20 from 8:30 am until 10 am, and again from noon until 2 pm, until December 24. Everyone Welcome skates are also slated to run from 5:30 pm to 7 pm and from 7:15 pm to 9 pm throughout the week.

Jolly Old Saint Nick will be arriving from the North Pole on Wednesday, December 22 to join Lakecity residents on the ice from 4 pm to 5:30 pm for a Parent and Tot on Ice Skate with Santa, followed by an Everyone Welcome Skate With Santa from 5:30 pm to 7 pm.

The following week, from Monday, December 27 until Friday, December 31, Family Skates run from 8:30 am to 10 am and from noon to 2 pm, while Everyone Welcome Skates go from 5:30 to 7 pm and from 7:15 pm to 9 pm.

Wednesday, December 29 will also feature a Parent and Tot on Ice Skate from 4 pm to 5:30 pm, plus a Youth Pizza Party from 7:15 pm to 9 pm. On Wrestling Day, January 2, an Everyone Welcome Skate is planned to wrap up the Cariboo Winterland festivities from 1 pm to 2:30 pm.

“We would like to invite the entire community to come enjoy some public skating over the holidays,” Atkinson said. Bring your entire family, or a group of friends. We can’t wait to see everyone out over the season.”
