Head inside to enjoy all the magic of skating outdoors at night this month.

Starting Dec. 13 the annual Winter Wonderland on Ice begins at Oceanside Place. Special lighting, holiday music and decorations including cold-weather animals, a cabin in the woods and a sleigh will contribute to the festive atmosphere. The idea is to create the experience of skating on an outdoor pond at night.

French Immersion families in the district are invited to celebrate at the centre on December 14, with pain au chocolate and cidre chaude.

It’s called Noel Sur Glace, hosted by the Oceanside Chapter of Canadian Parents for French.

All district 69 families with children registered in French Immersion can come to Oceanside Arena between 4 and 5:30 p.m. and enter the Wonderland by donation.

The Winter Wonderland on Ice has public skating sessions from Dec. 13 to 31. Phone RDN Recreation and Parks at 250-248-3252 for more on Winter Wonderland on Ice or view skate and swim schedules online at www.rdn.bc.ca/recreation.
