Winterfest Ice Rink,

It's not officially winter yet, but that won't stop the outdoor ice rink at Kiener Plaza (500 Chestnut Street; www.archpark.org/events/winterfest) from opening. The Winterfest Ice Rink, to use its full name, officially opens at noon on Saturday, November 17, with some fanfare, a little hoopla and the Festival of Lights from 4 to 8 p.m. The rink is then open from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, noon to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (November 17 to December 23) and noon to 8 p.m. daily December 24 to January 1. Skating is a full-body workout and a lot of fun, especially when you have a great view of the Arch. The new Kiener Plaza has a playground if you need more exertion, or you can take a break and enjoy a hot chocolate al fresco. Admission is free. While skate rentals are $7 to $12, they're free for kids ages three to fifteen on Thursday and Friday, courtesy of the St. Louis Blues.
