 Holiday Skating on the Square

Holiday Skating on the Square
Closing January 16, 2012

Courthouse Square (map)
Last chance to skate on our eco-friendly synthetic "ice" rink! It's a tad slower than regular ice, so it's great for beginners, plus it's not cold! We still recommend dressing for ice skating as falling still hurts, skate blades are still sharp and little heads could use a bike or ski helmet for extra protection. Price range from $10-$12 per person and SKATE RENTALS ARE FREE WIITH ADMISSION! We are open 7 days a week! Come on down!
