Let your child be their own Elsa these school holidays
Ice Skating is a fun activity for all the family this winter and with school holidays drawing to a close in Melbourne, you need to get in quick before the 'Skating At' pop up festival comes to a close!

The 'Skating At Festival' is back this year in three different locations across the state. Featuring special themed skate nights, food trucks, skating aids and of course, the world-class skating rink. The festival has turned Melbourne, St Kilda and Sorrento all into icy palaces, with plenty of fun activities and things to do while you're there!

Children as young as 2 can hop on the ice this time around, with the fantastic skating aid 'Kangas' available, to give the littlest ice skaters a go! Protection packs including helmets and knee pads are also available for both children and adults.

Head down to any of the festival locations on a Tuesday night after 5pm and you will be greeted with a 'Date & Skate' night, with select romantic tunes for the perfect date night. Or if that's not really your thing, Thursday nights after 5pm will get you in the groove with R&B tunes from the 90's and 00's!

Enjoy an espresso martini at the Melbourne location or check out the range of food and drink at all the locations.

This festival will be open rain or shine, but if you really don't like the rain, the Sorrento location is undercover!

Customers wishing to skate are advised to wear thick socks and warm clothing.

Skating At Festival is a wheelchair accessible event, and wheelchairs are allowed on the ice. Pets are also allowed to attend, but unfortunately not permitted on the ice.
