MILWAUKEE – Ice-skating returns to downtown Milwaukee on Wednesday, December 12, with the season-opening of Slice of Ice at Red Arrow Park. The rink will open at 11 a.m. and to celebrate opening day, free skate rentals and free Pepsi products will be available from 4-6 p.m.

Slice of Ice is free to use for skaters with their own ice skates, and skate rentals are available in the warming house for $7 per pair for ages 17 and under or $9 per pair for adults.

New this year, skaters will be encouraged to wear their ugly sweaters on December 21 for Ugly Sweater Day, presented by WaterStone Bank – skaters who participate will receive a coupon for a free skate rental in January or February. Skaters will also have a chance to win prizes, including parks gift cards, as part of the Slice of Nice contest.
