Just because the kids don’t have to go to school this week doesn’t mean they need to stay in the house. There is no better way to get out and get a little bit of exercise and fun all at the same time. Get off that couch, put down those video game controllers and come to the arena and put on some skates! The same goes for you parents as well! We are offering a public skate every day of vacation week along with some open stick sessions! The times for these events vary a little bit so please check out the schedule on our website http://www.mvarena.com/schedules/ for more information or to contact us. Enjoy the break and enjoy the ice!
