Skaters hit the ice for annual "Sunday Funday" event

The “Sunday FunDay” open skating in Wichita Falls kicked off Sunday for the holiday season.  

Eager skaters strapped on their skates Sunday afternoon and made their way to the Kay Yeager Coliseum. 

Some of those who hit the ice, say this is not their first time.

It's a lot of fun and you know it's a family friendly event, said Grace Minter, who came with her friends to skate.   So we really enjoy coming out here when they do free skate and it is kind of a cool event to meet new people.

Kids and parents of all ages skated around the rink, and no experience is necessary, but speaking of experience, Haleigh Porter said she learned about open skate from the professionals.

I started coming to the hockey games, said Porter.   Afterward they had like open skate and after that they would tell us about the open skate on Sunday.

The girls said it is all about having fun, not about staying on your feet.

There are people here who will give you tips that have been skating for years, said Minter.  Youre going to fall.
Emily Cobb said falling is what it is all about. 
 

You'll laugh about it later, said Cobb.  It's funny.

The MPEC will host open skating every Sunday until the end of December.
