HOUSTON, TX. (May 8, 2012) – In need of a “cool” weekend outing for the family? On Saturday, May 12, 2012, from 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Ice at the Galleria will hold its First Annual Learn-to-Skate Open House, featuring a series of special events and activities including ice rink games, raffles, prizes, free introductory Learn-to-Skate classes for ages 5 – 7 years old, and extraordinary on-ice performances and exhibitions.
The Learn-to-Skate Open House will highlight the exciting atmosphere and opportunities available at Ice at the Galleria. Public Session Admission and skate rental is $5.00 and beginner skaters are invited to participate in 15-minute Learn-to-Skate sessions taking place throughout the day.
