Check it out, The Elf on the Shelf has been spotted practicing his axels and spins downtown! Outdoor ice skating has been a popular holiday tradition in New York City at Rockefeller Center for years. Now outdoor ice skating rinks are open in Oklahoma City and Edmond too (we’re big time!). So it’s not a surprise to see our friend hitting the ice.
In Oklahoma City, The Devon Ice Rink is at the Myriad Gardens near the corner of Sheridan and Robinson and will be open through the end of January. Holiday hours began this week. They will be open from 11am until 11pm except on Christmas Eve (11am-6pm), Christmas Day (noon-6pm), and New Year’s Eve when the rink will be open until 1am for New Year’s Eve revelers. In January the hours will adjust. Cost is just $12 per person and includes skate rental $8 if you have your own. Tips, discounts are available for Myriad Gardens Members and large groups are encouraged to call for a reservation in advance. Learn to Skate Classes
