On Winter weekends there is a farmer’s market inside City Hall every Saturday from 9-3, and there will also be swing dancing concerts on Sundays from 1-4. During both events, skates will be available for free use at the skating rink outside City Hall. The rink is small, and several chairs are available for balancing yourself. This is a perfect chance to try out skating for the first time, without having to spend a lot of money! Skating is a very inexpensive and enjoyable activity, once you get used to standing up straight on a narrow blade. Even on the coldest days, it’s possible to skate comfortably outdoors, if you cover all of your skin. As well as the skating, the market and the swing dancing are very nice activities to enjoy. City Hall is directly upstairs from the Churchill Station of the LRT, and there are several other activities available on the square for free. While you’re there, make sure to drop in to the main branch of the library for your free library card!
