Preston Street BIA Presents: DiscoSkate DJ Skate NightsDate/Time
Date(s) - Friday, February 9 - Saturday, February 10
A disco skating party in Little Italy for the whole family!
The ultimate Instagrammable winter wonderland, the disco rink includes much more than ice skating. Hosted at Plouffe Park, adjacent to the Plant Recreation Centre at the corner of Somerset and Preston Street. The event runs over two evenings, February 9th and 10th from 7pm to 11pm.
DiscoSkate features a DJ, disco lights, projection art, giant tree of light, interactive light tunnel, photo booth and fire poi entertainers. There will be a hay bale seating area for non-skaters or those wishing to take a break. The Plouffe Park Recreation Association offers a limited number of free skates for children and youth.
This event was conceived, designed and produced by Dems & Doll, the local artists who created Night Lights and many other works in the Ottawa area.
Admission is free but voluntary donations of new, warm socks are encouraged, to support the Socks for the Homeless project that will deliver the donated socks to the Ottawa Mission.
Visitors are encouraged to dress in disco costume, with layers underneath that are appropriate for the weather at this outdoor event. Accessorize in any way you choose, be it with glow sticks, disco-themed jewellery or glow in the dark accents.
