Tuscaloosa's holidays on the River Ice Rink moving this year

TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) - Advance tickets are now on sale for Tuscaloosa's Holidays on the River ice rink, which is making a big change this year: the rink is moving to the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater. The rink will open December 1, and stay open through January 18.

In previous years, the rink has been located at Queen City Park on Jack Warner Parkway. City of Tuscaloosa Arts and Entertainment Manager Christy Bobo says the rink will be set up in the pit area of the Amphitheater, and the venue's seats will provide a good viewing area to watch skaters.

General admission tickets are $10 each for a 90-minute skate session. Bobo also says activities from previous years, like stories with Santa and horse-drawn carriage rides, will return. She says the location will provide a good viewing area for Christmas Afloat on the Black Warrior River, which makes its return this year.
