Father Christmas’s workshop, the ice rink will open this weekend
The Ardmore Parks and Recreation team are busy getting ready for a weekend of premieres at the Clubhouse. This Friday and Saturday, the family entertainment center will host the annual Workshop of Santa Claus, and it will also be the inauguration of the ice rink.
Ardmore Parks and Recreation Director Teresa Ervin said the Santa Claus Workshop is scheduled to take place from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, December 3 and Saturday, December 4. The event will feature three free crafts for the kids to do, Mrs. Claus’ kitchen that will sell reasonably priced homemade baked goods, and of course the chance to visit Santa himself.
“Santa and I talk a few times a year, and it’s his favorite stop,” Ervin said. “He loves coming to Ardmore. This year we’re going to put him in one of our treehouses, and he’s really excited about it.”
Ervin said families can have their photos taken with Santa Claus and that they are welcome to bring their own cameras to take photos for free or that photos are available for purchase for $ 5.
“This year we also have the added attraction of our ice rink which will open the same evening,” said Ervin. “So anyone who wants to come in and go through Santa’s workshop is welcome to go skating afterwards, and there will also be a separate line for people who just want to come in for skating. “
This weekend the ice rink will be open during the Father Christmas Workshop. The cost to skate is $ 10 for adults, $ 7 for children, and $ 5 for veterans, active duty military and seniors. The cost of skate rental is included in this price. Ervin said everyone who skates will have an hour on the ice and a rotation system will be in place on busy nights to ensure everyone has an hour.
The ice rink will remain open until January 2. It will be open Tuesday to Thursday from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 9 p.m.
Ervin said the whole team were very excited to have everyone come to see Santa’s workshop.
“This week we’re busy turning The Clubhouse into a magical snow-capped wonderland,” Ervin said. “So when you come on Saturday you will enter a wonderful and cheerful snowy mountain village. We are also going to make a grand prize to be won both nights, I don’t want to spoil it, but it’s something family at all. can benefit and allow them to use their creativity. “
Santa’s Workshop will also be a designated drop-off location for toddler toys. Those wishing to help bring the joy of the holidays to a child in need are asked to bring an unwrapped toy.
