ST. LOUIS - With the holidays just around the corner and the temperatures dropping, downtown St. Louis is getting another ice rink!
The St. Louis Blues are proud to partner with the Gateway Arch Park Foundation to open the Winterfest Ice Rink in Kiener Plaza for the third consecutive year.
Beginning on Saturday, Nov. 17 through Jan. 1, the rink is open to the public. Skate rentals will be available, and on Thursdays and Fridays, skate rentals are free for kids!
The rink will once again be hosting the Little Blues program and 3-on-3 adult leagues.
Under the Little Blues Program, boys and girls can register to learn to play hockey for five weeks at the Arch. For older hockey enthusiasts, the Winterfest 3-on-3 Hockey Classic returns, and leagues are available for fans of varying skill levels. Space is limited. To learn more or to register for a league, visit the Winterfest website.
To view the rink's calendar and hours visit the Gateway Arch Park Foundation's website.
On Friday, Nov. 23, the rink will celebrate the Blues' and Cardinals' loyal fans during One Nation Night presented by Bud Select. During the festivities, there will be appearances by the Blue Crew and opportunities for fans to enter to win prizes and giveaways.
The event begins at 5:30 p.m.
"Fans should come downtown, bring their families and spend time together as it will be a fun-filled night," said Hannah Arnold, the Blues' Director of Community Development & Blues for Kids. "It's a great way to spend time before the Blues take on the Nashville Predators, and fans won't want to miss Louie and Fredbird dropping the puck at the rink!"
In addition at One Nation Night, there will be a holiday Toy Drive from Fire Truck O' Toys for hospitalized children. All fans who donate new, unwrapped toys during the drive will receive raffle tickets for a chance to win autographed Blues prizes! To learn more, visit stlouisblues.com/winterfest.
