slides: Disney on Ice Stars Hit Worcester Common Oval

Thursday, February 21, 2013

 

Worcester patrons big and small got a chance to ice skate for free with Mickey Mouse and the performers from Disney on Ice during a specil preview performance of the show coming to Worcester's DCU Center April 25th to 28th.

In honor of Appreciation Day for the Worcester Common Oval, skating was free to all from 11:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Worcester's very own hot dog food truck, The Dogfather was also on scene to keep skaters full while having fun.

Dozens of children bundled up with their parents and braved the flurries and cold air to see their favorite Disney icon, Mickey Mouse, who skated around the oval with performers from the Disney on Ice: Worlds of Fantasy show. The troupe was in Boston for show that night, but will be in Worcester soon as the show hits the DCU Center April 25 -28th. To further commemorate the event, City Manager, Michael O'Brien handed over the key to the city to Mickey, to celebrate the success of the Oval.

Wednesday isn't the only day to take advantage of some time on the ice. The Oval will be holding special hours for February vacation all week: Monday and Tuesday from 1 - 6 p.m., Thursday from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., Friday from 1 - 6 p.m., and Sunday from 1 - 6 p.m. On Saturday morning, the rink will hold a curling exhibition from 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., followed by public skating from 1 - 6 p.m. Admission is $2, and children 6 and under skate for free.
