The 100 Mile & District Figure Skating Club is inviting folks to attend a Halloween-themed open house on Oct. 24.
The event is free and takes place from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m. at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre on Airport Road in 100 Mile House. It’s all about teaching children how to skate.
“It’s geared for Halloween, so we would like the kids to dress up in costumes and there will be prizes,” explains Danyelle Howard of the local figure skating club.
Close to 40 young skaters are currently enrolled in CanSkate, which takes place Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m. at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre. It’s different than StarSkate, a competitive figure skating program, Howard says.
“It’s a learn-to-skate program. We’re trying to get more children to join.”
