Join us on Friday, December 4 from 7-10pm for #Minnstameets_OVAL - a Winter Wonderland Instameet! Think 10,000 twinkle lights, rosy cheeks and fuzzy winter hats, and gleaming ice skates! Our gracious host, the Roseville Visitors Association (@visitrosevillemn), has invited us to the Guidant John Rose MN OVAL (www.skatetheoval.com) for an evening of merriment, skating, and of course, picture-taking! Please read entire caption below for details including some exciting giveaways!
Schedule of events:
7:00pm - Reception and check-in. We will have our own festive “Warming House” (aka Olympic Conference Room) inside the Roseville Skating Center where we can gather and mingle. Be sure to check in here to pick up your FREE tickets for skating. We will also have holiday treats and warm beverages.
7:45pm - Group shot will take place promptly at 7:45. We have special permission to run out onto the ice in our shoes to pose with the Zamboni for this photo. *Please do not wear shoes that will damage the ice (NO heels). Following the group shot, we will exit the ice to don ice skates - bring your own if you have them or rentals are available for $4.
8:00-10:00pm - Open skating time! Our @Minnstameets group will have our OWN designated rink within the OVAL - it will be the last one on the north end (far right). For those who do not wish to skate, there is also a walking path around the outer perimeter of the OVAL and there are still plenty of photo ops by the trees, all of which will be adorned in twinkle lights!
Our friends at @MSPClothing Co. will help keep us warm with some of their awesome Minneapolis and St. Paul hats - stay tuned for details!
The @MNLottery will be providing treats and a hot cocoa bar as well as Christmas sweaters and holiday-themed lottery cards (to those 18 and up with a photo ID)!
And last but not least, @RosedaleCenter will be giving away 3 - $100.00 Gift Cards just in time for holidays! Three winning photos will be selected at random from the event’s hashtag on the evening of Sunday, December 6th
