Largest Downtown Outdoor Ice Rink Coming to Greensboro
Greensboro, NC: Construction will begin in less than four months on the largest Downtown outdoor ice rink in the state of North Carolina as Greensboro’s center city hosts the second annual WFMY News2 Piedmont WinterFest. The centerpiece of the eight-week, holiday event is a temporary outdoor ice skating rink that will be 65 feet wide by 85 feet long, making the rink bigger than similar outdoor facilities in Raleigh and Charlotte. Skating and other events will take place at the Price Bryan Performance Place at Festival Park in Downtown Greensboro.
“We are excited to bring back the WFMY News 2 Winterfest for its second year,” said festival organizer Elijah Lovejoy, with Renovo Designs, LLC. “The rink attracted nearly 30,000 visitors in its first year and has already become a holiday tradition for the entire community,” he said.
The WFMY News 2 Piedmont Winterfest rink will be located at 200 N. Davie St. and will open on November 16, 2011 at 4 pm. While school is in session, the rink will operate 4-9 pm Monday-Thursday, 4-10 pm on Friday, 10 am -10 pm on Saturday and 12-6 pm on Sunday. During school holidays, the rink will be open all day from 10-10 pm. Admission to the rink, including skates, will remain $8 per person. Groups of 20 or more skate for $6 per person. Discounts will also be periodically available that will offer a $6 skating session. Private rink rental times are also available for parties and corporate events before or after public skating hours. The rink will close for the season on January 29, 2012 at 6 pm. The full schedule and additional programming details will be posted on the event website: www.piedmontwinterfest.com
