The City of Duluth Parks and Recreation Department is hosting a fun skating event that will give kids the chance to skate with the UMD men's and women's hockey teams.

This free and open to the public event will take place Sunday, October 21 from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. at Amsoil Arena.

Everyone must bring their own skates and no chairs, sticks, pucks, or shoes will be allowed on the ice.  Helmets are strongly recommended and children 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

This will be a fun opportunity for kids to get pictures with the players and get their autographs.  There will also be prizes, DJ music and healthy snacks.

If you're a big NFL football fan, you won't have to worry about missing much area action as the Minnesota Vikings have a noon game versus the New York Jets on October 21, which should end about 3:00 p.m.  Meanwhile, the Green Bay Packers will be on their bye week as they prepare to face the Los Angeles Rams October 28.
