Scottish culture celebrated at Kilt Skate

​On Saturday, February 1, the City of Lethbridge, in partnership with The Scottish Society of Ottawa, will be hosting Lethbridge's second annual Kilt Skate at ATB Centre. This kilt-themed, free public skate celebrates Scottish culture and is catching on around the world. There will be three Kilt Skates happening this weekend including New York City, Boston, and right here in Lethbridge.

This year's Kilt Skate will take place at ATB Centre on Saturday, February 1 from 1:45 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Bagpipers from Bridge City Highlanders will be piping skaters on the ice at 1:45 p.m.  Free hot chocolate, coffee, and tea will be available through the Lethbridge Curling Club during and following this fun skate session.

Kilts and tartan are encouraged, but not required, and all ages and abilities are invited to participate in this fun, family event. 

Lethbridge has a strong Scottish community as shown by the support of the recent Robbie Burns Day events. The Kilt Skate is a great chance for the whole community to celebrate diversity and experience a taste of Scottish culture while keeping active.
