Bundle up in your Halloween best and hit the ice this weekend during the public skate at the Washington Park Ice Arena.

The ice arena is hosting a Halloween-themed public skate 1-3 p.m. Saturday. Skating director Carly Dotts said the event will include a costume contest about halfway through the skating session, around 2 p.m., with prizes for the top spots.

The ice arena held a similar event a few years ago, Dotts said, and saw the opportunity to bring it back with Halloween falling on a Saturday this year. She said the event is set for the early afternoon to allow families plenty of time for other Halloween activities, such as trick-or-treating, throughout the rest of the day.

With fun lights and music playing, Dotts said the event should feel more like a cosmic skate event. Soda, popcorn and, of course, candy will be available.
