Winter Wonderland kicks off Monday, Dec. 12 with a special skating session with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs from 6:30–8:30 p.m.

This year there are 13 public sessions for the annual skating extravaganza, all sponsored by community businesses or individuals. This means free admission and rentals, says Ron Doetzel, manager of recreation services at the AV Multiplex.

On Saturday, legions of volunteers will transform the Coulson rink into a West Coast winter wonderland, with 40 real trees and lots of lights. New this year will be photos with Santa, in a big red chair, on Dec. 19 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Dec. 20 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. (no skating at either event), and Dec. 21 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. during Parents and Tots skating.
