November 10th marks the season opening of the Rothman Institute Ice Rink at Dilworth Park, located at City Hall in Center City Philadelphia.
To honor our active-duty military members and veterans, anyone with a military ID can skate for free through 11:00 p.m. tonight!
The Rothman Ice Rink is a yearly staple to Philadelphia’s wintry holiday scene, and offers urbanites the chance to ice skate in the midst of the bustling city, seven days a week. Admission is $3 for kids 10 and under, $5 for adults, and there is a $10 skate rental fee. The rink also offers skating lessons for children and adults. Each four-week session is $100 and includes lessons, admission and skate rental. To sign up, click on the Learn to Skate Registration Form, and you can always e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Head on down to 1 S. 15th St. in Philadelphia to Dilworth Park and rent those skates, if you’re the type to not be bothered by frost-bitten feet and numb fingertips. Make sure to let a military member in your life know that today, in support of their service, the Rothman Ice Rink is honored to let them skate for free!
