The weirdly warm weather we’ve had the past few days doesn’t totally scream “winter,” but with Mariah Carey heading to town we can safely say that the holiday season is underway.
Turkey dinners will come and go and, before we know it, the Christmas lights will be shining the way to year’s end.
And with this time of the year comes a Denver tradition: ice skating downtown. The Downtown Denver Partnership is gearing up to open the free Downtown Denver Ice Rink at Skyline Park on Monday, Nov. 20 at 5 p.m.
This will be part of the city’s winter wonderland activation of downtown.
Admission to the rink is free. Attendees are welcome to bring their own skates or rent a pair on-site.
Adult skate rentals are $11, kids 12 and under are $9 and 4th grader skate rentals are free. Military and first responders can get skate rentals for $7 and if you have a My Denver Card you can get rentals for $5.
Hours of operation will run on three separate schedules. Here they are broken down:
