For three days in early December, Hopkinsville will be transformed into Hopkins-chill, offering an array of family-friendly holiday activities downtown, including Hoptown’s first-ever temporary ice skating rink!

The 2,500-square foot rink, which measures approximately 60 feet long, will be positioned within the Founders Square parking lot and accommodate 80 skaters during a single session. Skatin’ on the Square will be set up from Dec. 7-9, giving individuals and groups ample chances to hit the ice during 16 different 90-minute sessions.

The synthetic ice setup — run by Indianapolis-based Heart Breaker Entertainment — can endure any weather conditions. Cost per person will be $10, which includes skate rental and an hour-and-a-half session in the rink.

While walk-up sales will be available, Skatin’ on the Square attendees are encouraged to register and purchase their session(s) in advance by visiting tinyurl.com/SkatinOnTheSquare. Pre-registration will guarantee a spot on the ice. Groups of six or more people are asked to call 270-887-4290 or stop by the Parks and Recreation Center at 2600 Thomas Street to make reservations.

The available Skatin’ on the Square sessions are Friday, Dec. 7 (9-10:30 am, 10:30 am-12:00 pm, 12-1:30 pm, 5-6:30 pm, 6:30-8 pm, 8-9:30 pm), Saturday, Dec. 8 (12-1:30 pm, 1:30-3 pm, 3-4:30 pm, 7-8:30 pm, 8:30-10 pm) and Sunday, Dec. 9 (1-2:30 pm, 2:30-4 pm, 4-5:30 pm, 5:30-7 pm, 7-8:30 pm).

Food trucks and coffee/hot chocolate vendors will be on site during Skatin’ on the Square. Make plans to join us for this historic holiday occasion!
