Downtown Tampa's new ice rink 'painful fun'
« on: November 21, 2010, 08:55:45 PM »
Wow!  Tampa has an outdoor ice skating rink under a tent in the new park area of the downtown area.  Quoting from the newspaper article...

TAMPA — The white tent sits between rows of palm trees at Waterfront Park. Inside, silver snowflakes dangle from the peaked ceiling, and glittery reindeer give off the illusion of winter. The temperature drops.

"An outdoor ice skating rink in Florida?" said Jennifer Edmister, a Brandon mother. "We were curious."

Edmister and her family warmed up the ice Friday at the opening of Tampa's first outdoor skating rink.

The rink will stay open through the holiday season, defying the warm weather and offering a taste of chillier climates.

They're getting the ice rink ready to put up again in November 2011, so get your ice skates sharpened!  I grew up on ice skates playing hockey in Ohio, so you definitely need sharp edges on those blades, unless you like falling down a lot!  LOL!   :D
