Chattanooga Times Free Press reports Chattanooga riverfront to get outdoor ice skating for the first time

Chattanooga will be getting a riverfront ice skating rink for the first time this winter.

Chattanooga Presents is partnering with Volkswagen Chattanooga to offer "Ice on the Landing."

The 50’ x 70’ rink will open the same night as the popular Lighted Boat Parade, Nov. 28, and will remain in place through Jan. 4, 2015, according to a news release from Chattanooga Presents.

With no other ice skating option offered either indoors or outdoors in Chattanooga, Ice on the Landing represents a unique recreational experience, the release stated.

Plans are for the rink to accommodate general skating for the public, as well as special themes, music events, appearances by Santa and certain nights to benefit local charities.

Hot chocolate and other snack vendors will also be on hand, the release stated.

Tickets will be $10 for adults and $8 for children 12 and under. This includes skate rental and skating for two hours.
