Kitimat Skates

http://collections.kitimatmuseum.ca/files/kitimat-skates/1998.1.8400.jpg

Kitimat Skates was a local component that supplemented the Canadian Museum of History's traveling exhibition, 'Lace Up! Canada's Passion for Skating'.

The Kitimat Museum & Archives supplemented the national museum exhibition with sixty years of Kitimat skating history.  Did you know that the first skating rink was created when the municipality annually flooded the tennis courts at Nechako Centre?  And, that the inventor of Marsh Pegs used by the NHL was a long-time Kitimat resident?

Kitimat Skates was on display September 2, 2016 – November 26, 2016

"To the youngsters, Kitimat presents a pleasing blend of modern, urban, recreational facilities in a wild-west, wilderness setting.  To the adults, it offers physical grandeur, unexcelled hunting and fishing, neighbourliness, dependence, and the genuine friendships of a new community." Canadian Geographical Journal 1959

What makes a town? What makes Kitimat unique? In the final analysis, Kitimat citizens have made the community. This exhibition attempts to show the public face of Kitimat.
