Free Family Ice Skating at the Maverik Center | Arts & Culture
West Valley City - Maverik, Inc., the Maverik Center, and Tum-E Yummies are teaming up with Modern Display to host "Maverik Adventure Wonderland," a FREE, Christmas-themed family ice-skating activity at the Maverik Center in West Valley City. Maverik Adventure Wonderland will be held every Monday and Thursday evening from 4-9 p.m. starting December 13 and running throughout the month of December (Dec 13, 16, 20, 23, 27 and 30).
Modern Display will turn the Maverik Center ice into a Christmas Adventure Wonderland. Visitors will skate to traditional Christmas music around a large Christmas tree display at center ice. Santa Claus will visit with children nightly from 6-8 p.m. and the Utah Grizzlies mascot, Grizzbee, the Grizzlies Ice Girls and Grizzlies players will make special appearances.
"The Maverik Center is a fantastic venue that allows us to provide an exciting Christmas experience for everyone," said Ernie Harker, Maverik's executive director of marketing. "It will be a great family activity or an inexpensive date. I hope this will be the first annual tradition of the Maverik Adventure Wonderland at the Maverik Center."
Grizzbee will be handing out free Tum-E Yummies fruit-flavored drinks to kids (while supplies last). Hot chocolate, coffee and other Christmas fare will be available for purchase as well.
Admission is free and skate rentals are $5. (A donation of $1 per skate rental will be given to teamgive, a Utah-based charity dedicated to raising awareness for children with neurological diseases.)
