Many Allston-Brighton children and their families braved the cold to hit Harvard ice for the 15th annual Allston-Brighton Family Skating Party on Tuesday (Jan. 20) night. The boys and girls strapped on their skates and zipped around the Bright Hockey Arena. Some demonstrated their skills with well-executed twirls, while others took command of the entire rink for an energetic game of tag. The event is one of many that invite Harvard neighbors onto campus for family learning and fun.
