Seventeen public skating sessions will run until Dec. 26, sponsored by different community businesses, which means free admission and rentals at the Alberni Valley Multiplex.

Volunteers worked over the weekend to transform the Coulson rink into a winter wonderland with lights, real trees and inflatable decorations, and the rink opened Monday for its first session.

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs hosted their Winter Wonderland session on Tuesday.

This Friday, Dec. 9 the City of Port Alberni is sponsoring a special late-night teen session from 9–10:30 p.m.

Events happen almost daily between now and Boxing Day.
