‘Tis well and truly the crux of winter here in Adelaide and we sure are feeling the chill in the air. Whether you like winter or not, it’s here to stay for a little while longer – accept it, embrace it. Getting into that wintery spirit will be a walk in the park, or a skate on the ice, should we say, as Winter Wonderland is making its return to Glenelg Foreshore this July.
Glenelg’s Moseley Square will be the temporary home to an ice skating rink from the 1st to the 25th of July. The rink will be sheltered from the elements by a windowed marquee which allows for beach views whilst you scoot around on your blades.
Everyday on said dates in July, one-hour ice skating sessions will be held throughout the day. During your chosen session, you will be able to do as you please – whether you’re a seasoned skater looking to take your mind off of life’s stressors, or you simply haven’t put the ye’ ol’ boots on in years, or ever!
On weekdays, kids can take to the big slippery ground at 10am and get stuck into various ice games including; limbo, basket shooting and mini ice hockey. On the other side of the spectrum – every Friday and Saturday night the rink will transform into an icy dance floor, illuminated by a big old disco ball and engulfed by hits from the 80’s and 90’s. These Retro Skate sessions take place at 7pm and 8:30pm – so pack your gloves and scarf, maybe even get your thermals on.
And just to take it up a notch – on Friday 8th July at 8:15pm, a firework display will grace the skies above, although if the weather isn’t too crash hot, they will be rescheduled to the same time on Saturday 9th July. This could potentially be a cute as heck date idea, or just a bit of family fun – the options are endless.
Winter Wonderland is a great excuse to get yourself out of the house and keep on exploring across the chilly season. So check out the sessions and ticket information here.
