The Kraken Community Iceplex turned Northgate Mall into the home of local ice sports. The spot once roamed by teenagers going to Hot Topic is now the residence of an NHL team and numerous community events like blood drives, learn-to-skate classes, and, for two days this October, special Halloween-themed skates. These public skates are open to all ages and levels, and there will be scary soundtracks to score your skating. Costumes are encouraged. Maybe it’s time to take a crack at dressing up as Buoy, the Kraken mascot?
But when it comes to contests, it won’t be what you wear that wins. Instead, a pumpkin curling competition will be held. That’s right, don’t miss your chance to hurl a squash down the ice. Afterward, when your arms and legs are about to fall off from all the gliding and sliding, consider visiting 32 Bar & Grill for a bite. (The location overlooks the rink!) If an additional pick-me-up is needed, there’s even a Starbucks onsite. Cause it’s never too late for a Pumpkin Spice Latte, right?
