The University of Delaware Ice Arenas will host holiday public skating sessions beginning Friday, Dec. 22, and continuing through Monday, Jan. 1.

The holiday skating sessions are scheduled as follows:

  • Friday, Dec. 22, 1-4 p.m. and 9:30-11:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, Dec. 23, 1-4 p.m. and 7:30-9:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, Dec. 24, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Dec. 26, 1-4 p.m. and 7:30-9:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Dec. 27, 1-4 p.m. and 7:30-9:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, Dec. 28, 1-4 p.m. and 7:30-9:30 p.m.
  • Friday, Dec. 29, 1-4 p.m. and 7:30-9:30 p.m.

  • Sunday, Dec. 31, 1-4 p.m.
  • Monday, Jan. 1, 12-4 p.m.

The arena’s new lighting system will take this annual holiday skating series to the next level with exciting new features. Projections of holiday images will dance across the ice and blacklights will make the images glow brightly.

“Our goal was to increase the skating experience” said Assistant Athletic Director of the Ice Arenas and Outdoor Pool Jim Kaden. “With the logos projected on the ice and the black lighting ability…the skater will now be part of the skating experience instead of just skating in a circle for two hours.”

Admission is $8 for adults, $5 for children 6 and under and free for students with a valid UD ID. Skate rentals are $4.
