Ice Skating

Solvang Erects an Icy Oval this December


Never mind the sunshiny days we are experiencing — it’s autumn, by gum, and Santa Barbarans are going to enjoy chilly-weather fun regardless of the shorts-and-T-shirts temperatures. To that end, come December, there will be a skating rink erected in the heart of Solvang. As part of the Danish-inspired town’s Julefest celebration, folks will get to feel the wind in their faces — or the ice on their bums — as they glide around the ice-covered oval in Solvang Park (at Mission Dr. and First St.). The winter-land fun is Friday, December 6-Sunday, December 8, 9 a.m.-9:45 p.m. Tickets are $9 for kids 12 and younger and $12 for ages 13+. Visit julefestsolvang.com for more info.
