Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk announces New Holiday Tradition – Ice Skating at the Boardwalk

SANTA CRUZ, CA, 2017-Sep-20 — /Travel PR News/ — The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is offering guests a new way to celebrate the holidays this year. Starting November 11, the seaside amusement park’s Main Entrance Plaza will become a center of holiday fun with ice skating, holiday decorations, rides, games, and treats. A 30 foot Christmas tree will light up the Main Entrance, holiday prizes will be distributed at the games, and festive music and lights will fill the Plaza.

“Our new Main Entrance Plaza is a wonderful new space for special events like this,” said event director Karley Pope.  “The Boardwalk has always been a place to create summer fun memories, now families can create winter holiday memories with ice skating and Boardwalk fun!”

Presented by Dignity Health Medical Network, the Boardwalk’s new 40′ x 60′ ice skating rink will offer one hour of ice skating for $12 from November 11 through January 7.  Located in front of the Pirate Ship, the rink uses real ice and will be covered so that skating can continue rain or shine. Skates are included with the one hour session. Reservations may be made online starting in November.

Other holiday activities including Roaring Camp’s Holiday Lights Train which departs from the Boardwalk for an old-fashioned train ride through the streets of Santa Cruz.
