Participants will be able to ice skate among the glitz and lights of downtown Solvang Park for the first year ever, as part of Solvang’s Julefest celebration.

The memories of the inaugural ice skating rink will be captured by the Bluesteel Photo Booth, a vintage airstream trailer, with both candid ice skating rink shots and photo booth photo-strips, available for purchase. Santa will be available for photos in the photo booth on Friday, December 6th from 10:00AM to 5:00PM, Saturday, December 7th from 12:00PM to 5:00PM and Sunday, December 8th from 10:00AM to 5:00PM.

Tickets are priced at $9 for children 12 and under, and $12 for children 13 and up. Tickets include skate time and ice skates.
