Press release from Henderson County Tourism Development Authority:
An exciting new attraction is happening this holiday season in Downtown Hendersonville. Lace up your skates and take to the ice skating rink located at the Visitor Center at 201 South Main Street. The rink opens Tuesday, December 20 and runs through Sunday, January 1 from 10am – 8pm. Bring the family to the rink on Christmas and New Years Day from 1pm-5pm.
The synthetic ice skating rink is made from special polymers so it can be enjoyed year-round in any temperature. Beginners can learn to skate easily on the synthetic surface with more control than on refrigerated ice. The capacity of the rink is 40 people per 45-minute session.
The skating rink is a fundraiser for the Henderson County America in Bloom Committee. America in Bloom is an economic driver, designating communities nationwide as desirable areas to live, work, and visit. Cities, municipalities, and counties are evaluated on strict judging criteria, based on their location’s climate, environmental conditions, and population. Henderson County received 4 Blooms out of a possible 5, or 79% of possible points in 2016. Participating municipalities included: Hendersonville, Mills River, Laurel Park, and Flat Rock.
Price of admission is $8 for adults and $5 for children. Group rates for 10 or more are available.
