Winterfest is back 100 percent and ice skating is one of the events making a return this year. So if you’re looking for a "cool" activity to do over the holidays, beginning Saturday, November 20, you can have a super-fun time gliding effortlessly -- or shuffling awkwardly -- across the ice on El Paso’s only outdoor seasonal rink.

Big enough for twirling and a bunny hop or two, the rink offers novices and pros alike the opportunity to ice skate in the sunshine during the day and under the stars at night.

Attractions nearby include a Winter Market full of local vendors and artisans, and the Holiday Cafe where you can sit down and enjoy snacks and hot beverages.

Here's what you need to know about cost, hours, and how to book a skating session:


The rink is located between the El Paso Museum of Art and the Plaza Theatre
