Ice Ice Baby! Santa Monica Holiday Rink Opens Today:

It’s that time of the year again with the return of Downtown Santa Monica’s enormously popular ICE at Santa Monica skating rink, which opens today just in time for the holiday season.

A grand opening community celebration will be held this coming Thursday, Nov. 7 at the rink, located on the corner of 5th Street and Arizona Avenue in Santa Monica.

The event, now in its seventh year, kicks off Downtown Santa Monica, Inc.’s holiday program called Winterlit.

World Pair Champion Skater Randy Gardner will once again host the grand opening celebration.

The special night will feature performances by synchronized skating team, California Gold, and some of California’s most elite skaters.

The festivities include a night of free skating from 6-10 pm, music from DJ Kelly Dlux and tastings from area restaurants, including Del Frisco’s Grille, Kreation Juice, VitaCoco, Rosti, and Real Food Daily.

Sweet samples will be provided from Hollywood Candy and Chocolate Opulence, and there will be an interactive, self-snap photo booth, as well as kids crafts and activities for the entire family.

Downtown Santa Monica CEO Kathleen Rawson along with other board members of Downtown Santa Monica, Inc. and city dignitaries will welcome the crowd.

Thursday’s grand opening celebration is free and open to the public, however donations of unwrapped toys will be accepted for Santa Monica PAL Best Gift Ever. General admission to ICE at Santa Monica is $12 per person (includes skate rental) for the remainder of the season.

The rink will be open Monday-Thursday from 2-10 pm, Fridays 2 pm to midnight, and Saturdays from 10 am to midnight, and Sunday from 10 am to 10 pm.
