Ring in 2013 with early countdowns at Robson Square
Grab your mittens, jacket and skates! Bring the whole family to the Robson Square Ice Rink this New Year’s Eve for a celebration full of family fun.
The Robson Square Ice Rink is proud to host its fourth annual free family-friendly New Year’s Eve celebration in downtown Vancouver. This year’s festivities will include a magical show for kids, live music, DJs and two free early countdowns with noise makers and party hats – and, of course, free skating.
The rink will be open on New Year’s Eve from 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Celebrations kick off at 4 p.m., with early countdowns just for the kids at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
The ice rink at Robson Square is open until the end of February 2013. Hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, with longer hours on Fridays and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Skating is free with your own skates. Skate and helmet rentals and a concession stand are available at the rink.
