Ice Skating in the Heart of Martinez

Oct 30, 2016 10:26PM ● By Elena Hutslar

Main Street Martinez is proud to announce the 2nd annual outdoor holiday ice rink in downtown Martinez. The DC Solar Downtown Holiday Ice rink will be located in the newly updated municipal parking lot at the corner of Ferry St. and Marina Vista Ave., and will be open from Nov. 19 through Jan. 8, 2017. Hours will vary with extended hours on school holidays. Prices will range from $10 to $14 for unlimited skating. Discounted group rates and seasonal passes will be available to purchase. It’s a perfect place to host a birthday party, and private or company holiday parties. Bring a Scout group to the rink for a special rate.  We also welcome fundraising days to raise money for your non-profit or group while enjoying this unique outdoor activity.

The DC Solar Downtown Holiday Ice rink is becoming a wonderful holiday tradition for families and friends, and a great way to discover downtown Martinez too. There are excellent restaurants within a short walking distance from the rink with a variety of food to suit every taste and budget. Parking is convenient and FREE after 6pm and on weekends. The City of Martinez offers free parking throughout downtown during the two weeks around Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

The title sponsor again this year is DC Solar Company.
