CLOQUET — We are really excited this year to bring back a major free, family event for Easter!  

On Saturday, April 16, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., we will be holding our first Skate with the Easter Bunny at the Northwoods Credit Union Arena in Pine Valley. We will have a DJ, arts and crafts projects, bean bag toss, cookies, face painting and more!

If you or your little ones are not skaters, you can still do the hokie pokie on the track as well as the other office activities. There will be a few pairs of skates to borrow, but sizes are not guaranteed. Wilderness players will be participating, as well as the Lumberjack and Wilderness mascots!  

Prior to the event, the Cloquet High School Track Team will be serving up pancakes at Carmen’s from 9-11 a.m. Come support our area athletes for only $5! If you still get the hungries during the Skate with the Easter Bunny, CAHA will have concessions open!

The drawing for prizes will be at 12:30 p.m. by age category. Finally, on the way out, the kiddos will get a treat bag. So, be sure to mark your calendar and we hope to see you there!
