With holiday music playing in the background as you swirl around under twinkling lights, Louisville's Winter Skate ice rink is practically a winter fantasy world. What better way to enjoy the icy holiday nights (and days) than to go on a skating excursion with your family and friends?
"It's so festive!" Meg Denbow, Director of Communications at Boulder Creek Events commented. Winter skate has been a part of the holiday season in Louisville since 2003. When the Bolder location wasn't available anymore, Winter Skate turned to Louisville. They invited Winter Skate to their current location, the Stienbaugh Pavilion on Front Street with open arms.
"It's really great!" Denbow said, "The people of Louisville have made us a part of their own family traditions." Denbow mentioned that Christmas Eve is especially busy. In fact, most of the Christmas Eve patrons are regulars who consider that their special Christmas tradition!
Winter Skate doesn't just offer ice skating, they also have a snack bar, glowing fire pits, and cozy carriage rides through down town Louisville. Also, on certain nights, they will play holiday movies so you can watch while you skate! If your aiming for a skating birthday, it is pretty expensive to rent the whole rink, but if you just bring your party to the rink, they will give you a discount off your skates. If you lack skating skills and would like to learn more, the 29th Street Mall's rink offers figure skating lessons. In no time at all, you'll be showing off super-fancy moves to all of your friends!
Not only Louisville families have enjoyed this cheerful rink, people from all over the world have! Winter Skate has drawn people from all different backgrounds and cultures to Louisville. Patrons from all over the world have visited, including Japan, Poland, and England! On occasion, even Colorado celebrities have visited the rink. Last winter, Todd Helton, the Rockies first baseman, stopped by! So if you want to hang out with friends or family, learn to skate, or just have some good old fashioned holiday skating fun, come to Louisville's Winter Skate ice rink!
