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. Free skate rentals will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
