Downtown Sacramento Ice Rink opening night
Friday, November 2, noon, St. Rose of Lima Park, $2
The Downtown Sacramento Ice Rink has increased in size by 20 percent this year—it now stands at a glorious 6,800 square feet. Other media outlets are quick to echo that this nearly rivals Rockefeller Center’s 7,200-square-foot rink, but we have other metrics in mind: Our rink is now nearly the size of 30 school buses, roughly the square footage of New Hampshire’s governor’s mansion and about three times the size of the average female house cat’s sphere of territorial influence. Come down and celebrate the ice skating season that runs from this discounted opening night through January—and glide around in a wintery ice rink. 701 K Street, godowntownsac.com.
