Swing 'n' Skate 2016 banner

Swing 'n' Skate features live swing, jazz and big band music in the City Room at City Hall from 1:00 - 4:00 pm on most Sundays throughout January and February. Each week local bands will be joined by the Sugar Swing Dance Club to help put the boogie-woogie in your step! If you’d rather be outdoors, the music will be broadcast directly outside for the enjoyment of ice skaters on City Hall Plaza.
