Each winter season, the Downtown Raleigh Alliance produces & hosts the IPREO Raleigh Winterfest! The event takes place in late November, with a weekend full of many wonderful events! One of these events is the kick-off to Raleigh's only outdoor natural ice skating rink, located on the 400 Block of the sound end of Fayetteville Street in Downtown.
The skating rink is open until late January and offers a variety of special events. They include college nights, hockey tournaments & Friday nights with live bands or DJ's, as well as stroller skate for parents!
Whether you're new to ice skating or a regular, you'll find many memories to be made here! They have all sizes for children & adults, or you can bring your own skates! They offer group rates for 20 or more, as well as 2 for 1 deals on certain days.
They offer warm beverages & treats, and are just a short stroll to many local restaurants & shops. They're great at keeping everyone informed on social media for upcoming events or inclement weather, be sure to follow them at @DowntownRaleigh on Twitter.
