Skate on downtown ice rink for free on Friday
Ice rink will open earlier than expected for Christmas tree lighting
SAN ANTONIO – The coolest spot in San Antonio, the Rotary Ice Rink, is set to open a full three days early and will be free for ice skaters next Friday at Travis Park.
Skaters can take to the ice on Friday at no charge thanks to H-E-B, according to Rotary Club of San Antonio President Brandon Logan.
The rink will open in the afternoon in conjunction with the Tree Lighting Celebration, which will take place Friday from 3-6 p.m.
H-E-B will provide free VIA bus rides to the tree lighting as well as free ice skating to guests from 3-5:30 p.m.
Santa Claus will also be making a special visit to the park during the celebration, which will feature family-friendly activities like cookie decorating, holiday crafts and a special area where visitors can write letters to Santa.
The rink will be open through the end of January. Admission is $10. The skate rental is $4. Click here for more information.
