Grand opening and ribbon cutting for ‘Skating in the Park’

November 14, 2018 by  

Once again, the Huntsville Museum of Art (HMA) will be holding ‘Skating in the Park’, and the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting date for the resumption of this event has been announced.

Mayor Tommy Battle will briefly address those assembled. Prior to the opening of the rink, Anna and Elsa, the Snow Sisters, will make a special appearance. Museums often use banner printing services to promote exhibits or special events like this.

During the first hour, free hot chocolate and popcorn will be served. Free museum admission passes will be given to the first 25 skaters, in addition to a place in a free museum family membership drawing.

Open seven days a week with hours that vary throughout the season, skating for those 10 and over costs $15, while those 9 years and under pay $10. A group rate for 10 or more is $13 per person, and scooter rental is $5. Those bringing their own skates qualify for a $5 discount.

Skating in the Park has turned into one of the museum’s largest fundraisers and is located in Big Spring Park, in back of the Huntsville Museum of Art. Once skaters are finished, they can warm up inside the museum and view the holiday exhibitions. Those showing skating wristbands may take 20% off on items in the Museum Store.

HMA has given the outdoor ice skating rink’s 2018-2019 winter opening date as this Friday, November 16, at 4:00 pm.
