'Tis the Season

Holidays on the River returns in 2020 with ice skating, music and more.

We're celebrating the magic of the holidays with a few extra health precautions this year! 

  • Wearing is caring: Skaters and observers are asked to kindly wear a mask while inside the amphitheater. 
  • Clean hands, warm heart: Sanitizing stations will be placed around the amphitheater for guests to keep your hands squeaky clean!
  • Skate with space: Skaters are asked to maintain appropriate distance between their group and others. The rink will be limited to 50% capacity, giving you more room to skate! 

Thank you for helping us have a holly, jolly, and safe time at Holidays on the River!

Safety first!

Beginning immediately, patrons will be able to carry the following style and size of bag into the facility:

  • Bags that are composed of a clear plastic or transparent vinyl material and are no larger than 12” x 12” x 6”. Logos are allowed, but may only be on one side of the bag.
  • Small Clutch (4.5" x 6.5" or smaller) with or without a handle or strap. 
  • Clear plastic re-sealable bags, no larger than one gallon, limit two per person.
  • Gift Bags once properly inspected (no wrapped boxes will be allowed in the facility)

Exceptions will be made for bags required for medical needs upon proper inspection.
