Nanaimo residents can skate for a loonie or less leading up to 2016, as the City of Nanaimo Parks, Recreation and Environment department again hosts Winter Wonderland.
The annual skating event takes place between Dec. 26-30 in Frank Crane Arena at Beban Park, with sessions $1, or free in some instances. Helmet and skate rentals are also free.
Prizes will be given out, with the grand prize being tickets to see the L.A. Kings taking on the Vancouver Canucks on April 4.
The Nanaimo Kinsmen Club will host a fundraising pancake breakfast on Dec. 29 between 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. The breakfast is by donation and proceeds will benefit Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
