“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.”
“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. “You’re going to fall.”
Emily Cobb said falling is what it is all about.
“You'll laugh about it later,” said Cobb. “It's funny.”
