Now that the kids are on vacation from school for the Christmas and New Year holiday, it's time for the parents to think about things for the children to do. One great idea is to go ice-skating! There are several arenas here locally that offer public skating.

1. The New Hartford Rec Center

Tuesday - Friday (During School Holidays): 1-3 p.m.
Friday 7-9 p.m., Saturday 6-7:30 p.m. and 7:30-9 p.m., and Sunday 3-5 p.m. (Regular Hours)

 2. The Clinton Arena

(315) 853-5617

Tuesday - Friday (During School Holidays): 1:30-3:30 p.m.

If you've never been skating I would highly recommend it. There is no shame in not knowing how. If we missed any rinks in the area feel free to email me Have a Merry Christmas!
