H&R MFRC Holiday Fest at the Dartmouth Sportsplex
Military families! You are invited to join the Halifax & Region MFRC for a fun-filled afternoon on Saturday, December 14 from 11am-3pm at the Dartmouth Sportsplex. Kick off the holiday season splashing around in the Pirates Cove pool from 11:30-1:30pm, then stop by the party room for food and activities, followed by an afternoon skate in the rink from 1:30-3:30pm. Tickets for swimming and skating are $3/person for each activity, or $5 for both the swim and skate. Don’t feel like swimming or skating? Join us in the party room for holiday music, entertainment, face painting and snacks. Canadian Forces small business owners will be on hand selling great gift ideas and stocking stuffers. Tickets for the activity room only are $2/person. No cost for any activities for children under 24 months. Please bring your own skates and helmets. Children 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult in the pool. Get your tickets at the Halifax and Shearwater Site of the MFRC before they are gone! Visit www.halifaxmfrc.ca for more information.
