Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza will open its doors for public ice skating on Nov. 30 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, home to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. The public skate will run from 6 to 9 p.m. patrons must bring their own skates. Mohegan Sun Arena will not have skates on site for rent.

Skate rentals will be available starting Nov. 29 at 4 p.m. There are a limited number of skate rentals available. Children ages two to 12 in attendance that dress as their favorite Disney character will receive a voucher for a free ticket to see Disney on Ice Presents Princess Classics at Mohegan Sun Arena Jan. 12 to 17.
