Ice Skating with DJs II set for Jan. 27Written by Stacy Jurich | | email@example.com
Ice Skating with DJs II might be the cure for your wintertime blues. If you are a snow bunny or aren’t fazed by freezing temperatures and gray skies, then Ice Skating with DJs II (ISDJ) might be the most fun party you go to all winter. ISDJ is an ice skating party, open to the public (all ages) at Ottawa Park Ice Rink. DJs from the sidelined Pop Explosion project out of the Old West End will spin the soundtrack to skates sliding across the ice.
The music will include sounds from funky soul records, early R&B, hip-hop, dubstep, freak-out disco and classic jams. DJs are currently taking requests from any genre on the event’s Facebook page.
ISDJ premiered in February last year on a perfect winter night. Snow fell on the lit ice rink and onto merry ice skaters’ noses and eyelashes, creating a chilly bliss. Laughter and hot cocoa warmed everyone from the inside out. As the snowfall increased, people in awe and joy laid down in the middle of the rink to watch it fall and catch a different perspective on the party.
Even if you haven’t been in ice skates since you were 7, don’t let that hold you back. It’s not about how well you can skate or how many times you fall, it’s about feeling good with romance in the air and having a great time in Toledo.
The fun doesn’t stop on the ice. The official ISDJ Afterparty is at the Ottawa Tavern, 1817 Adams St., where smiling, rosy-cheeked skaters can share stories and continue the merrymaking. The Ottawa Tavern will open at 8 p.m.
Tickets to ISDJ are $10 or $8 with a friend, and can be purchased at the entrance. This includes admission, skate rental, a drink voucher for the afterparty and loads of fun. Tickets for children ages 12 and younger are $6. The event is 7:30-9:30 p.m. Jan. 27 at the Ottawa Park Ice Rink, 2200 Bancroft St. Search Ice Skating with DJs II on Facebook for more information and to request a song.
