DJ Skate NightsNews & Events | Written on January 6, 2016
Winter is coming… Okay, winter is here but you have to agree, it was certainly slow in making its way to Toronto this season. Now that it’s here, it’s time to fully embrace the great winter events and activities in and around the Liberty Village area.
Don’t worry. We’re not recommending a polar plunge in Lake Ontario. On the contrary, this event is one that is sure to bring some heat to the wintery outdoors. Say a brrrright welcome to DJ Skate Nights, the self-proclaimed “Best Winter Block Party” in Toronto that boasts an impressive line-up of DJs spinning great music from 8:00pm to 11:00pm every Saturday until February 20, 2016!
Liberty Village, take the 10-minute drive to 235 Queens Quay or hop on a Streetcar and head over for a fun-filled Saturday night that you won’t soon forget. Shake your groove thing on the ice at Natrel Rink while you practice (or show off) your skills to music provided by incredible local and international DJs.
Here’s the impressive line-up for this fun-filled, free, ice-skating event:
