Members of the public skated with the Kelowna Rockets Sunday afternoon for free at Prospera Place in downtown Kelowna.

The family-friendly event, sponsored by CIBC, ran from 1:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m.

In May, the Rockets will host the Memorial Cup, the four-team round robin that determines the Canadian Hockey League championship.

As a host city, Kelowna automatically qualifies for the tournament, that includes the winners of the Western Hockey League, the Ontario Hockey League, and the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
