Saturday To-Do: River Market on Ice

Posted By on Fri, Nov 19, 2010 at 6:09 AM


9:30 a.m., River Market Pavilions. $8 for skaters.

Consider it an antidote to the crass commercialism of the holidays, a celebration, instead, of thrill of the season — the bundling up, the winter sports, the family togetherness — or at least what we've come to recognize as the thrill of the season from commercials. Sure it's manufactured, but given a choice between fake winter wonderland and no winter wonderland, what're you going to choose? I'm thinking it's genius, particularly if we have another stretch of 70 degree temps and they can keep the ice from melting. The gist: From November 20 until January 9, the River Market Pavilions transform into ice skating rinks open to the public. The hours are 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Saturday and noon until 8 p.m. on Sunday until December 17. After that they stretch from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday (and stay the same on Sunday). It's $8 per person, including skate rental. Kids under four skate free with a paid adult admission. The Diamond Edge Skating Club and Radio Disney's Rockin' Road Show celebrates the opening on Saturday. See for more info and special dates.
