Raleigh’s favorite outdoor ice skating rink is returning to Red Hat Amphitheater! This year, THE RINK presented by UNC Health will feature extended operating hours through Jan. 16 as well as special programming on select nights.
"The community response we saw last year was astounding, and we’re overjoyed to be bringing this holiday experience back again to Red Hat Amphitheater. We loved watching all the special moments THE RINK created for our guests, and becoming a new annual tradition is really exciting," said Kerry Painter, director/GM of the Raleigh Convention and Performing Arts Complex.
"UNC Health is proud to support this wonderful winter attraction again this year," said Kerry Grace Heckle, UNC Health’s executive director of corporate and community relations. "We look forward to the joy this new holiday tradition will bring to our community."
Pricing remains the same for this year, at $11 for skater admission, including skate rental, and $6 for non-skater admission (taxes and fees may apply). Tickets are for two-hour time slots, and purchasing in advance is strongly encouraged, as there are a limited number of time slots available for each day.
