The Gardens plans free skating event for New Year's Day

The Gardens Ice House in Laurel will present its fourth annual New Year's skating celebration on New Year's Day.

As an expression of gratitude to the community, the Gardens will provide a free public skating session from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and will present the annual Nationals Send-Off Figure Skating Exhibition at 1 p.m., featuring 2003 U.S. national champion Michael Weiss, who trains at the Gardens. Admission is free.

"It will be a great day and we look forward to it every year," said the Gardens' president, Claiborn M. Carr III in a news release. "We are a community facility and we take that commitment very seriously."

The public skating session, the first of three open sessions scheduled for New Year's Day, will include skates, ice time and hot cocoa. Gardens' mascot Mickey Moose will be on hand from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

The celebration will also include the Sport Chevrolet Adult Hockey League All-Star Games. Each of the 50 teams in the league will be represented in the games, which will be played during the morning and afternoon.
