Los Angeles’ Largest Outdoor Ice-Skating Rink kicks-off its 20th Anniversary with Free Festive Events
LOS ANGELES – The Bai Holiday Ice Rink Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles is back with winter fun starting November 16, 2017, through January 15, 2018. Southern Californians can enjoy a full season of festive events, which include DJ Spotlights, Learn to Curl, Silent Skate Party and Polar Bear Skate: The LA Edition.
“We may not have snow in Los Angeles, but with the generosity of the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, we have had ice for 20 wonderful years,” said Willy Bietak, president of Willy Bietak Productions. “This year’s rink is sure to be especially memorable, with a litany of events and performances that individuals of all walks of life will enjoy. It is just the thing to put you in the holiday spirit, and thanks to our partnership with Metrolink and Metro, skaters can get all the perks of an LA winter, without the traffic.”
Metrolink riders can avoid traffic jams and parking fees to the ice rink with Metrolink’s $10 Weekend Day Pass on either Saturdays or Sundays, which allows unlimited rides throughout the system and transfers to Metro’s light rail and subway system at no additional cost.
Through a partnership with Metrolink and Metro, riders also receive a $1 skating session discount. “Metrolink is excited to continue this partnership with Bai Holiday Ice Rink Pershing Square and bring a winter wonderland experience to sunny Southern California,” said Metrolink Deputy Chief Executive Officer Elissa Konove.
