NORFOLK - Saturday is five days ahead of Halloween, but Norfolk residents may see some ghosts, witches and other mythical creatures venturing to the Dominic Zappia Arena that evening for skating, games, and prizes.
The Norwood-Norfolk Figure Skating Club is hosting a Halloween Rock n Skate and bake sale from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Saturday at the aforementioned arena and prizes will be awarded following a costume contest.
Club Vice President Jennie Villnave said that the club is optimistic they will have a good turnout, something that is typical for the event.
We do this every year and usually get anywhere from 50-100 kids, Ms. Villnave said. We do Rock n Skate every month during skating season. We have a Christmas one, a Valentines Day one and this is our Halloween one.
Skating season began on Oct. 8.
Admission is $3 and proceeds go to the club. Ms. Villnave said that funds earned are used by the club to get new costumes for skaters to use at future figure skating shows.
She also explained that during the evening there will be a wide variety of activities to do, with music playing as well.
We do a chuck-a-puck and you get prizes for that. Each kid also gets a ticket when they register and come into the event. We have the chuck a puck, the costume contest and a variety of other activities, Ms. Villnave said. We will also have the up to date music rocking in the background when the skaters are going.
In just a few short weeks, the vice president said, the club will be holding another important event.
Were doing a figure skating club exhibittion in November. This in loving memory of Heather Planty and she was the treasurer who passed away recently, Ms. Villnave said. We will also have vendors, a 50-50 raffle, etc.
The Dominic Zappia Arena is located at 9 Clinton St., Norfolk.
