The newly constructed ice-skating rink on the Washington Harbor opened on Monday after construction on the project began in early October. It will be open through March, seven days a week, and will be open on Thanksgiving Day.
The grand opening for the rink will take place on December 1st during a “Winter on Water” celebration. The event will be from 4 to 7 p.m. and will occur in conjunction with the House of Sweden’s annual Christmas Bazaar. The celebration will consist of ice-skating performances, choral processions, special food provided by restaurants along the waterfront—including the new Farmers Fishers Bakers—and a St. Lucia procession.
Skate rentals are $5 and entrance fees are $9 for adults and $7 for children, seniors and the military. The rink plans to have future special events such as a Cartoon Skate, Rock-n-Skate, Skate with Santa in December, and College Night every Thursday.
