SEAPARC hosts Sooke’s Skate with Santa

The event combines skate with a family art event

Children and adults alike are invited to take part in Sooke’s annual Skate with Santa.

Besides enjoying the free skate, hot chocolate and cookies, participants will be invited to doff the skates and have fun exploring their creative Christmas spirit. They’ll be provided with paints, crayons, stickers and everything they might need to make the perfect holiday card or decoration.

It’s an initiative of SEAPARC, the Amber Academy, and the Sooke Arts Council.

The event takes place on Sunday (Dec. 16) between 1 and 2:30 p.m. and is free of charge to the public, although a donation of food or cash for the Sooke Food Bank would be appreciated.

The Arts Council’s new book “ART & WORD” will also be available.
