“Glide beneath the glittering lights of downtown Houston and discover the holiday magic on The Ice powered by Green Mountain Energy,” the organization writes on their event page. “We have reinvented the experience to ensure that you can still make memories here with your family and friends.”
In past years, the organization hosted a series of themed nights for skaters to enjoy on their renewable energy-run rink.
While details have yet to be released, the organization hosted Cheap Skate Nights on Mondays, from 5 – 10 pm, with tickets available at reduced prices. On Tuesdays from 7 – 7:15 pm, Houston’s top figure skaters performed for the crowds for Skating with the Stars.
On Wednesdays between 5 and 10 pm, Houstonians could enjoy skating to music from Houston artists for Clutch City Wednesdays. Plus, sport any Houston sports team threads could get a $2-off admission.
Good boys and girls could get some ice time with Santa on select Thursdays in December from 7 – 8 pm for their Skate with Santa! sessions. Other Thursdays were reserved for Storybook Stars, wherein children can have the chance to visit with their favorite storybook characters.
On Flashback Fridays – save for Christmas Eve and NYE – DJ Mohawk Steve bumped all the nostalgic hits over the years from 7 – 9 pm.
Or, shake it and skate it on Dance/Skate Party Saturdays (excluding November 20, Christmas, and NYE) to DJ Boris as he whips up a playlist of the coolest pop hits!
