While looking to see what’s happening in Seattle that could mess up my trip into town (fearing traffic like we had tonight leaving the Eastside) I came across this interesting event. Who would have thought….
Time: 12 noon – 8 pm
Organizer: KeyArena & Seattle Center (www.keyarena.com)
“Seattle Center invites the public to a Free Ice Skate at KeyArena, Friday, June 4, 12 noon – 8 pm. Free admission, free skate use and 17,000 square feet of ice offer a cool way for families and friends to slide into the weekend.”
“No tickets are required for the Free Ice Skate. Doors open at 11:30 am. Enter at the east KeyArena doors. Skating sessions begin at the top of each hour and last for 40 minutes. Ice walkers will be available for those who need extra support. Some food and drink concessions will be available, and skaters may bring in outside food and drink (non-alcoholic) as well.
The Free Ice Skate at KeyArena is part of ongoing efforts by Seattle Center Productions, the public programming arm of Seattle Center, to open campus venues for free public activities. The ice is in place on the KeyArena floor for Smucker’s® Stars on Ice®, May 29, featuring Winter Olympic ice skating champions.
The Free Ice Skate at KeyArena is ideal for afternoon excursions from school and daycare, TGIF outings, early evening dates and free family entertainment. Beginners to advanced skaters are welcome on the ice. For more information on the Free Ice Skate and other Seattle Center activities, visit www.seattlecenter.com or call 206 684-7200.”
