There will be festive, holiday-inspired snacks and crafts, and attendees can even expect a special guest appearance by a skating, sun-kissed Santa, who will stop to snap photos with children.

To top it all off, despite the July heat, skaters will experience a pop-up snow shower during the event.

Skaters are encouraged to dress in holiday-themed garb for the occasion.

Lace up your skates while you still can – the rink, which opened for the summer on April 22, closes for the season on Sunday, July 17. Everyone who visits the roller rink between July 9-17 will receive a complimentary admission ticket to ice skate at the Rothman Orthopaedics Ice Rink this winter.

Tickets for the rink can be purchased online.
