We may have just started fall but those who live in Chicago know it usually doesn’t last long.
That’s why The Department of Cultural Affairs has already announced the opening dates for the Millennium Park Ice Rink.
This year’s opening date is set for Friday, Nov 18!
If weather cooperates, the rink will open at noon and stay open until March 5, 2017.
The rink opens the same day as the annual Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration, which basically means, the holidays are upon us!
Skating is free and open to all – skate rentals cost $12.
Millennium Park Ice Rink hours of operation:
Monday to Thursday, noon to 8 p.m.
Fridays, noon to 10 p.m. (ice skating lesson at 11 a.m.)
Saturdays (Nov. 19 to Jan. 7), 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. (ice skating lesson at 9 a.m.)
Saturdays (Jan. 14 to March 4), 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. (ice skating lesson at 9 a.m.)
Sundays, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. (ice skating lesson at 9 a.m.)
