Winterfest at the Arch

Last year's Winter Classic outdoor hockey game was a great success, from the weather to the outdoor civic skating rink to the final score (the St. Louis Blues beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-1). Unfortunately the city doesn't get another outdoor game again this year, but the skating rink will return. Winterfest at the Arch opens the ice at 2 p.m. Saturday, November 18, at Kiener Plaza (500 Chestnut Street; www.archwinterfest.com). The opening coincides with the Ameren Festival of Lights, which features live entertainment, the lighting of the Salvation Army Tree of Lights and a fireworks finale. The rink's regular hours are 2 to 9 p.m. Thursday through Sunday through January 1, and admission is free if you have your own skates (must be approved at the gate). If you are skateless, you can rent a pair ($7 to $12 per hour).
