From a press release:

The Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre will open its doors for public ice skating on Tuesday, Dec. 9 in support of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program.

Anyone bringing an unwrapped toy or making a $5 contribution to Toys for Tots is permitted to skate.

This is the only day throughout the year that the public is allowed to skate on the ice at Mohegan Sun Arena (255 Highland Park Blvd., Wilkes-Barre), home to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.

The 11th annual public skate will run from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. Patrons must bring their own skates. Mohegan Sun Arena will not have skates on site for rent, and all guests that will be going on to the ice will need to be wearing skates.

Skate rentals are available at the Toyota SportsPlex Community Ice Rink (38 Coal St., Wilkes-Barre) for $3 per pair starting at 4 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 8. There are a limited number of skate rentals available. Proper photo ID and a credit card must be presented to rent skates. All skates must be returned to the Toyota SportsPlex within 24 hours of the open skate. For more information on the Toyota SportsPlex, visit its website.

Guests in attendance will have the opportunity to win tickets to select Mohegan Sun Arena events. Refreshments will be available for purchase at arena concessions stands.
