Giveaway: Skate or Splash Party at The Jones Center!

It’s not like you need a reason to party, but there are plenty of times when you have one — a kid’s birthday, awesome grades at school, an upcoming holiday, or even just a get-together with fun friends. Since you already have plenty of reasons to celebrate, we’re going Printto help provide the party place. This week we’re partnering with our friends at The Jones Center to give one local mom a FREE party for up to 12 people at either the ice skating rink or the newly renovated Splash Pool at The Jones Center in Springdale. All you need to do is bring the kids!

The Jones Center will set you up in a private party room, and you’ll have up to 2 hours to either skate or splash. (We can almost guarantee that winning this kind of party for the kids will earn you some MAJOR cool points with your kids and their friends.)

So the only question is… do you want to skate? or swim? Here are some details on both options:

SKATING PARTY: The Ice Arena at The Jones Center is massive. Kids are always blown away when they see it for the first time. It’s home to hockey games and ice skating lessons. (And remember that time they hosted the characters from Frozen on the ice rink?)

If you choose to spend your party time skating, you’ll also get your own ice skating assistant, who will give the kids a 30-minute lesson and then give skating tips throughout the remainder of the hour. Here’s a pic of the expansive Ice Arena.


SPLASH PARTY: It doesn’t matter if the sun is shining or what the temperature is outside because the huge Splash Pool at the The Jones Center is indoors, so it’s always ready to party. The Splash Pool area just went through a massive renovation and it is gorgeous! Fun, bright colors surround the pool area, and the bottom of the pool is nice and smooth for little feet. The twisty slide is back and better than ever and so is the always-popular mushroom fountain.

If you pick this option, you’ll get a private party room located on the pool deck, and lifeguards will be on duty. Here’s a pic of the amazing Splash Pool.


HOW TO ENTER: To throw your name in the online party hat to win either a skate or splash party, just click on the words “post  a comment”  below and tell us what occasion you’d like to celebrate. (Birthday? Congratulations party? Family Fun Time Party? Holiday party? Or maybe it could be a ” Just Because We Have Awesome Kids” party.)

  40. Darn, we just sent out birthday party invitations for the kids, so missed that opportunity. However – we just moved here, and don’t know many people, so I would use this for an opportunity to get to know our neighbors! There are several kids that live around us, and I keep looking for an opportunity to have a reason to get to know them better – so I’m thinking a “Get to Know your Neighbors Splash Party” would be perfect!!! Once we break the ice, the kids would have a whole ‘hood full of friends at their beck and call, and I’d know who to call on if I need to borrow an egg or who to ask to go on a walk! Thanks for this chance!
