SOUTH BEND, Ind. With winter weather here, outdoor skating rinks are iced and ready for use. The Howard Park Ice Rink is open and has extended holiday hours. It is also running special deals, which change every session.
Organizers say the weather is perfect for it, and skating is great experience for the whole family.
“It's a great family past time. We have a lot of people that come every Christmas every weekend. It's a great time to spend with family, even if you've never skated before. Nobody is judging you,” said Keilah Ehrman, athletic coordinator at O’Brien Center.
She also said the two weeks during Christmas break are the busiest time, with thousands showing up to skate.
