Can you believe 2019 is almost over? The year has flown by, but we’ll chalk it up to how much fun we’ve had here at Southwestern Skate. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s time to think of ways to celebrate the holidays in OKC!
How to Celebrate the Holidays in Oklahoma City
Skate and Celebrate
The holidays can be hectic for many of us, what with visiting family members, making the holiday party rounds, kids being out of school, and of course all the decorating, shopping, cooking, baking, wrapping, caroling, volunteering, and mistletoe-hanging! It’s a whole lot of merriment and jolliness (and for many folks, stress) to fit into 6 short weeks. But hey, with a little eggnog and your favorite seasonal jams, you can do it.
One way to make the hustle and bustle a little easier is to make time for fun and relaxation. Plan a family fun day while your kids are out of school, or bring your out of town guests to get everyone out of the house for a bit. We even have special Thanksgiving Break sessions planned, so invite your friends and get ready for some fun.
Reasons to Roller Skate
The most obvious reason to visit us at our Oklahoma City skating rink is just for the sake of fun! But if that’s not enough for you, these are some good reasons as well:
- Your kids need to unplug. It’s easy for kids to be very sedentary during school breaks. Encourage your kids to peel their eyes from their screens and get off the couch. Roller skating is a lot more fun than P.E., and it can even be a great way to meet up with school friends they might miss during the long holiday breaks.
- You’ve got to counteract all of those holiday treats somehow. Let’s be honest, one of the best parts of the holidays is the food! Pies, cakes, cookies, candy, cocktails, party foods, and rich meals are just part of the experience, and you don’t want to miss out. But balance is important, so make time for exercise as well. Fortunately roller skating is one of the most fun workouts you can do, building core and lower body strength, balance, agility, and even providing an aerobic workout.
- The weather outside is frightful. It’s easy to get stir-crazy when it’s cold and wintry outside, but kids and adults alike still need to get active and burn off some energy. That’s where we come in! At Southwestern Skate, you can enjoy skating no matter the weather at our indoor skating rink.
