Five fun facts about the new temporary & portable
"ice" skating rink at the Winter Village in Historic Easton

1. The rink surface is synthetic and mimics skating on real ice. It's made by a company in Minnesota called KwikRink Synthetic Ice. Synthetic rinks are often used at special season events like the Winter Village, and in the home rinks of professional figure skaters and hockey players.

2. Using a synthetic material means that the rink can be used in any temperature since it doesn't need to stay frozen. Otherwise there would be no skating on it right now with 50+ degree temps in PA! It also means that we don't need to use a Zamboni to refinish it like they do at the "real" ice rinks.

3. Even though it's not "real" ice, we still refer to it as ice skating since there's not a better term or phrase to describe it that everyone would understand. The experience is more like "gliding" than traditional ice skating. It takes a moment to get the feel for it, but once you do, you're off and skating!

4. Skating is free for city residents and $5 per person for non-resident. Skate rental is $5 for everybody.

5. Skating capacity is limited so you need to reserve a timed ticket online in advance. Many days sell out in advance, so be sure to book EARLY!
