The Jones Center is offering parents an opportunity to get some last-minute shopping done without the kids this week.

The organization will host their Ho Ho Ho Holiday Skate Party from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 22.

Parents can drop off their kids at the party for a day filled with ice skating, ornament-making, hot chocolate, and other holiday-themed activities for kids in a supervised atmosphere.

“For a lot of families, the kids are out of school this week, but parents are still working,” said Robin Aprea, skating coordinator at The Jones Center. “We’re giving the kids some fun holiday activities to do and the opportunity to learn a new skill of ice skating and not just be sitting at home on their phones.”

Cost for the program is $25 per skater. To register, call 479-756-8090 ext. 2100, or stop by the reception desk at The Jones Center, 922 E. Emma Ave. in Springdale.
