Monday, join Bay State Parent magazine for an ice skating party at Frog Pond on Boston Common from 7:30 to 9 p.m.
The event is in celebration of Bay State Parent's 10th year publishing. To honor this milestone, we have been hosting 10 birthday parties at family-friendly venues across Eastern & Central Massachusetts since May 2006.
The skating party is also a fundraiser for Smiling Kids Inc. The Southborough-based charity provides birthday gifts for needy Massachusetts children, throughout the year. Visit the organization's Web site at www.smilingkidsinc.org to learn more.
Admission to our Monday night party is FREE, if you bring a new & unwrapped toy for the charity. The party is limited to the first 500 skaters. Cash donations also will be accepted. iParty is supplying goodie bags for our party guests.
If you don't own skates, rentals are available on a first come, first serve basis at $5 for children and $7 for adults. Locker may also be rented for $1.
This is a great family event. Don't worry about the time -- it is school vacation week. No school on Tuesday!!!
While a handful of our sponsors are providing free tastings, the Frog Pond snack bar will be open too. Parking, for an additional fee, is available at the Boston Common Garage, located under the Common, with an entrance on Charles Street.
So spend an evening skating under the stars in Boston and help a worthwhile charity, too!
