The St. Catharines (MOB)ilizers, a grassroots group promoting positive change in Niagara region and beyond, is holding another fundraiser in support of Free the Children. On Friday, Jan. 7th, area residents can lace up their skates from 10 a.m. until noon at the Niagara Falls Rink at the Brink. Admission is $5, skate rentals are $5 and you can also get your skates sharpened for $5. The group will also be selling hot chocolate and homemade backed goods, with all proceeds supporting Free the Children communities in Haiti.
I have been lucky enough to enjoy skating the Rideau Canal in Ottawa, and the Rockefeller Center in New York. This Winter I plan on ice skating just a few feet from Niagara Falls at the attraction dubbed “The Rink at the Brink”. I can’t wait to see the view at night when the falls is lit up.
The attraction is very affordable. Admission, including skate rental, is $10 for adults and $8 for children. The prices are even cheaper if you bring your own skates.
