Spectators are also present in abundance to cheer on their favorite teams and enjoy the activities held right on the ice in Meredith Bay. “Bob Houses” (ice/fishing shacks) fill the ice near the hockey rinks and provide a festive party atmosphere with entertainment, a spot to warm yourself, and even a place to try some home brewed beer!
