Who says you can’t go ice-skating in the middle of the summer? The Bowie Ice Arena is completely enclosed, so it’s open year-round—even when the temperatures soar. And on Thursday, July 25th, you can get in for free thanks to a special event, Skate in the Shade at Bowie Ice Arena.
From 11:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., the ice skating arena will throw its doors open to the public for some active fun, free of charge. Despite the heat outside, you should make sure you wear long pants and socks in order to hit the ice comfortably. Also, bring your wallet if you need to rent skates, as these aren’t included in the free admission. If you can’t make it to the Bowie Ice Arena for Skate in the Shade, you’re welcome to come by any time during public skate hours from July through April.
