The Pavilion to celebrate winter’s arrival and holiday season

December 15, 2017

The holidays are getting a bit more festive at The Pavilion with a Winter Solstice Celebration and holiday open skate sessions.

Bend Park and Recreation District’s ice rink will celebrate the shortest day of the year on Friday, December 22 with a Winter Solstice Celebration from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. With twinkling lights to welcome winter’s delights, ice skaters will enjoy treats and a special figure skating performance by Bend Ice Figure Skating Club.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food donation for NeighborImpact to receive a special $6 admission price including skate rental. NeighborImpact’s Food Bank needs these nutritious foods: canned meats, canned and boxed meals, peanut butter, canned or dried beans and peas, pasta, rice, cereal, canned fruits and fruit juice.

In addition to the Solstice Celebration, holiday skate will be offered from Dec. 23 to Jan. 5 with extended open skate sessions, family skate and parent-tot skate. The Pavilion will be open for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

Schedules are available online at https://www.bendparksandrec.org/the-pavilion/schedules/.

For community members who prefer to watch others on the ice, spectating at The Pavilion is always available at no charge for hockey games, curling matches and skate sessions.

A second session of ice skating and sports programs, offered from January to April, is currently open for registration.
