Cool Way to Beat the Heat This Weekend: Ice Skating Where the Rhinos Play
If you’re looking for a place to chill this weekend, hit up the El Paso County Sierra Providence Events Center.
Lace up, hit the ice, and spend a super-fun Saturday or Sunday evening gliding effortlessly (or shuffling awkwardly) across the ice in the indoor hockey arena where the Rhinos play.
The El Paso Hockey Association is opening the rink for public ice skating this weekend.
The cost to skate is $15 per person. You can bring your own skates, but if you don't own a pair, no worries, they got you.
I'm told they have over 900 hundred pairs of skates ranging from toddler size 7 to adult size 15, and the use of skates is free.
Skate Times and Days
Saturday, August 6: 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Sunday, August 7: 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
How to Get There
The Sierra Providence Events Center is located at 4100 E. Paisano in the same parking lot as the El Paso County Coliseum (across the street from the El Paso Zoo).
It’s the home of the El Paso Rhinos, and the area’s largest and only indoor professional ice-skating rink.
Like all indoor rinks, no matter what the weather is like outside it’s always chilly indoors, so bring a jacket and a pair of gloves.
