Skate With Santa

Lace up your skates for a day of skating with Santa Claus.

Santa travels to Patterson Park Saturday to skate with kids who've been naughty and nice. A soundtrack of holiday music accompanies the event at the Dominic "Mimi" DiPietro Family Skating Center. The staff at the ice rink will create balloon animals for the kids and serve toasted marshmallows. Hot chocolate is available to warm up with, and Santa's favorite snack (you know, cookies) will also be served.

Santa will be skating 3 p.m.-5 p.m. Saturday. Admission is $4, and skate rental is $2. Dominic "Mimi" DiPietro Family Skating Center is at 200 S. Linwood Ave. Call 410-396-9392.

Those looking for more Santa fun can visit Fells Point to enjoy hot chocolate and a morning of skating with Mr. Claus.

Santa will be skating 10 a.m.-noon Saturday. Admission is $3 for kids 12 and under, and $5 for adults. Skate rentals are $3. Baltimore Ice Rink at Harbor Point is at the intersection of South Caroline, Block and Thames streets. For more details, call 410-522-3213 or 877-BALTIMORE.- Meredith Lidard
