Lo­cal school bands will per­form on Thurs­day nights and there will be movies dis­played on an out­door screen on Fri­days.

On Satur­day af­ter­noons, fic­tional char­ac­ters will make ap­pear­ances, as Elsa from the Dis­ney film “Frozen,” and The Grinch will take to the ice. There will be a DJ from 7 to 10 p.m. Satur­days.

Af­ter the New Year, the cen­ter will of­fer learn-to-skate lessons.
