Weekend Wrap-Up, May 17-19, 2019

Let the sun shine! Urban Parent will be rollin’, cleanin’, dancin’ and singin’ this weekend!

1. Coffin Skate Shop is ready to host monthly summer roller disco events at the Mayflower Curling Club with family-friendly skate times from 5-7! The first one is this Friday! For an early bird Season Pass that gets you into all FOUR discos, click here or maybe or here for tickets to the Friday May 17th event. Take a ride to the Skate Shop on 3008 Oxford St. to pick up your tickets. During family skate times, kids under 16 get in for free.

2. Join Science Odyssey and the Discovery Centre in the Spring Shoreline Cleanup this Saturday! Take part in one of two cleanup sessions: Halifax Waterfront from 10-12 (meeting at the Wave at 10) or Dartmouth’s Woodside Regional Park from 2-4 (meeting at the entrance closest to the Ferry). Plus, stop in the Discovery Centre for a full day of activities focused on shoreline pollution prevention with special guests including Parks Canada and Stop Trashing It.

3. On Saturday evening at 7, Special Olympics Halifax is hosting their annual Spring Dance for athletes, families, and friends at 6903 Mumford Rd in Halifax! It’s totally FREE! Enjoy music by DJ Rock and Special Olympics Athlete, Josh Woodbury, refreshments, and prizes!

4. How could we get away with talking about all this free-ness without mentioning Freeman’s? Well, they’re having live music at their Quinpool location on Sunday at 2. There is no admission to see Travis Hatcher. Hey here’s an idea: help with the shoreline clean up, then head to Freeman’s Quinpool for milkshakes, pizza, and music!
