One of the sure signs that the holidays have returned to L.A.: Pershing Square's Downtown on Ice outdoor ice skating rink is now open, and will remain open daily through Jan. 21.
Admission is $6, while the skate rental is an additional $2. From the promo materials:
It’s the coolest way to add a little winter chill to the holidays without breaking the bank. Special events like free youth hockey clinics, a free concert series, the free Winter Holiday Festival (December 7, 8, 9), weekend Kids Zone interactive entertainment, and others, make it the number one winter destination for families, thanks to sponsorship from the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, the Los Angeles Kings, and Councilmember Jan Perry (9th District).
The rink is open every day, noon to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday thrugh Sunday. (From Dec. 14 to Jan. 6, it's open 10 to 10 every day.)
In case you missed it, I recently posted video of us getting engaged right there at the downtown ice skating rink in 2001.
