Chattanooga Presents is partnering with Volkswagen Chattanooga for the second time to offer Chattanooga’s outdoor holiday ice skating rink, Ice on the Landing. The ice rink will be located under the open sky near Ross’s Landing on the Chattanooga Green. People of all ages will be able to enjoy this winter activity from Friday, Nov. 20 through Monday, Jan. 18.

An estimated 30,000 visitors skated last year as Ice on the Landing made its debut in the community. This year, Ice on the Landing will be able to accommodate even more people with an expanded rink size of 60 feet by 100 feet (over last year’s 50 feet by 70 feet size).

Ice on the Landing will be open every day within its eight-week season. It’s schedule will accommodate public skating and feature special events, appearances by Santa, and nights that benefit local charities.

Also new this year is a season pass that will be available for skaters who come regularly, as well as gift cards for the rink. In addition, Ice on the Landing will offer a basic skills course during two four-week sessions on Saturday and Monday mornings prior to opening hours (details at www.iceonthelanding.com).

Hot chocolate, as well as three fire pits, will help to keep visitors warm.

Like last year, tickets will be $10 for adults and $8 for children 12 and under. This includes skate rentals and skating for two hours.

Equipment will be provided again this year through Magic Ice USA. However, the rink will be locally managed and operated through Chattanooga Presents.

A detailed schedule of operating hours and activities on the rink can be found at www.iceonthelanding.com.
