Skating in the City

Last Friday was our Ice Rink opening- the ice rink that has been in progress since last Spring. Two of my co-workers (and boss) have been working non-stop since last spring to make the ice rink happen and I just came into the picture a few weeks ago to work on programming. The Opening Ceremony was the first thing on my ice rink events list!

 The Opening Ceremony was held on Friday from 3pm-6pm. We invited VIP guests including sponsors and folks we work with throughout the year. Pandora Jewelry is our main sponsor so they said a few words, as did our WPB President, and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

We offered light bites from Sugarvale, hot chocolate from Shake Shack, snacks from Rusty Scupper and event cookies specially made by La Cakerie. The guests nibbled while watching friends skate or taking a break from the rink themselves.

 We also had a performance by The Next Ice Age who will be making various appearances during the entire season at the ice rink. I watched in awe as these girls glided along the ice doing turns and spins. I can barely walk on skates on the matting outside of the ice rink, let alone twirl on one leg on ice!

We have a full calendar of events this holiday season and I can’t wait to see the ice rink come to life. There’s nothing more exciting than the holiday season in Baltimore City.
