Seeing Santa during the holiday season is a tradition for most American families. We all remember standing in those long lines at the mall just to whisper our most hoped-for present to Mr. Claus. While seeing Santa was always great fun, those lines were always a thorn in our parents’ sides.

This year, you can avoid the lines and skate with Santa over the weekend.

Bring your camera and your kids this Sunday to the Novi Ice Arena and skate with Santa. There will be raffles and games, too. Create wonderful and stress-free memories with your kids this weekend.

For all Novi residents, the cost of the event is only $4 and for non-residents it’s $5. Need skates? No problem, the cost of the skate rental is $3. For more on what the Novi Ice Area is up to, check out their website www.noviicearena.com.
