Grab your ugliest holiday sweater (or T-shirt) because Christmas is coming about half a year early to Dilworth Park.
On Saturday, July 9, Rothman Orthopaedics Roller Rink, located on the west side of City Hall, will host a Christmas in July Skate from 1:30-3:30 p.m.
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.
Ho, Ho, Ho! Christmas is coming early at the @rothmanortho Roller Rink. On July 9, a sun-kissed Santa who traded his sleigh for a pair of skates will be rolling with us from 1:30-3:30, and will even take a break to snap some photos with kids. https://t.co/DkC5U6Te4c pic.twitter.com/vjyJhW1MNJ— Center City District (@ccdphila) July 2, 2022
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.
