Ice Skating Returns to Audubon Zoo

New Orleans, LA, USA (November 10, 2014) —  Once again it’s time to glide into the holiday season with a day of “ice” skating at Audubon Zoo on Sunday, November 23.

For the second year in a row, a skating rink will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in front of the Capital One Stage beneath the majestic oaks at Audubon Zoo. Skating and skate use is included with Zoo admission or Audubon membership.

The rink of synthetic ice made from a high-tech plastic, which measures 40 feet by 28 feet, has a capacity of about 35 people. Skaters will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. The wait time for skaters will be determined by the number of people in line at any given moment.

The “ice’’ is made from an eco-friendly, recyclable acrylic material that enables a skate blade to glide as smoothly as if it were on real ice.

To add to the festivities, a DJ will be on hand spinning holiday tunes and a sleigh will be available for photos from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tinker Fairy and the Queen’s Snowman also will be on hand for meet and greets.
