Free Skating Wednesday for Worcester Common Oval Appreciation Day

Monday, February 18, 2013

 

With students off from school for their February vacation, it's a perfect time to lace up your ice skates and head down to City Hall this Wednesday for the Worcester Common Skating Oval Sponsors/Partners Appreciation Day.

The City will host a special ceremony to thank the many sponsors and partners that made the 2012-2013 inaugural season of the Worcester Common Skating Oval, as well as the downtown snowflake program, a success on Wednesday, Feb. 20, at 11:30 a.m. at City Hall Plaza on the Common, right next to the Skating Oval.

There will be plenty to appreciate, too. Thanks to Gold Medal sponsor, The Hanover Insurance Group, the Oval will be open for free public skating on Wednesday from 11:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. The $3 skate rental fee and a skate deposit of either a major credit card or $25 fully refundable cash deposit will still be required, as well as a Mass. driver's license or state ID, in order to rent skates.

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.

Fallon Community Health Plan is the lead sponsor of the 12,000-square-foot rink, which is 4,000 square feet larger than the size of the Rink at Rockefeller Center. Worcester Polytechnic Institute sponsors the rink's skate shack, and Polar Beverages, Inc. is also a Gold Medal sponsor. Silver Medal sponsors are the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and the College of the Holy Cross. Unum is a Bronze Medal sponsor, and Clark University, Bay State Savings Bank, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, UMass Medical School and Advantage Benefits Group, Inc. are all supporting sponsors.
