Lace up your skates and head out for winter fun
If you’re looking for something fun to do with your friends and family this holiday season, Chattanooga won’t let you down. While most of the city’s annual festivities opening this week keep your feet solidly on the ground, there is one new attraction that requires your pedal extremities to glide.
On Friday Nov. 28, Chattanooga’s first riverfront ice skating rink, Ice on the Landing, will open to the general public!
It’s scheduled from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. on that first eve. Come get a close-up view of the Lighted Boat Parade as you make your way around the rink. In honor of the opening, the penguins from the Tennessee Aquarium will be joining the party until 9 p.m.
Presented by Volkswagen Chattanooga, Ice on the Landing is an open-air rink measuring 50’ x 70’ that organizers say, “will feature a schedule to accommodate general skating for the public, as well as special themes, appearances by Santa, and a rotating schedule to benefit not-for-profit groups.”
Located at Ross’s Landing at the riverfront park, Ice on the Landing will be open for six weeks, with the last day set for January 4, 2015.
Tickets, which include skate rental and skating for two hours, are $10 for adults and $8 for children 12 and under. Hours vary by date and weather and can be checked by visiting iceonthelanding.com
