2. Other Places to Skate in HRM: There are other places to skate, and for some, the season ends in a few weeks. Check out our list of places to skate in HRM.

3. The Science of Rock n Roll: This travelling exhibit at the new Discovery Centre will keep your little musicians  happy for hours! Plus, if you are a Bowie fan, go to the remixing area, and turn down all the channels – except for his voice. It’s chillingly beautiful. You might cry.
