A medley of FREE community events keep you in the holiday spirit with the Winter Holiday Festival (with Santa and his “live” reindeer, snow, and make & take crafts), the “12 Nights of Christmas” concert series, Menorah Lighting, Kwanzaa Celebration, “It’s Christmas, Snoopy” showcase, and more.
Centrally located in the heart of the City of Angels at the Pershing Square Metro stop, the rink is easily accessible by car, bus or Metro.
