The rink will be open from 1 PM to 7 PM on Friday and 12 PM to 6 PM on Saturday and Sunday.

While the rink is the main focus, you can also check out a Holiday Market, hosted by the Alliance for Pioneer Square on Friday and Saturday.

There will be over 40 local makers, making it a great spot to pick up holiday gifts as well as goodies for yourself.

So grab a jacket, and some friends and get ready to experience historic Seattle in a new way.
