1  ice skatesWhat’s more fun than ice skating in 70 degree weather? Imagine strapping on your skates and gliding over the ice creating lasting memories with family and friends through laughter, fun and yes even exercise. Add to that image, sparking holiday lights and music as you round the rink under the stars. Discover the holiday spirit a whole new way, ice skating in downtown Redlands. For the first time ever there will be ice skating at the Redlands Mall.
Sponsored by the City of Redlands, and the Rochford Foundation, and brought to you by the Redlands Chamber, the synthetic ice will be assembled on the north-west corner of the mall, in the
center of town. Both daytime and evening skating will be available from December 26th through January 1. 
Skates will be provided for those eager to show off their triple salchow jump, their ice dancing skills or just try to maintain balance for the first time.
“We are all very excited about this amazing opportunity and grateful to our sponsors for making this happen.” said Chamber President Geoff Bonney, Bonney Architecture. “We believe that visitors and residents alike will stop at the downtown businesses before and after their skating adventure, once again bringing focus to the charm of downtown Redlands. There are plans underway to offer a hockey clinic, have a skate time for toddlers and much much more.”
Redlands on ice is a new adventure in holiday celebration that will bring young and old, resident and visitor, to downtown Redlands. Reminiscent of a time gone by where good old fashion fun can be found in the center of town, where neighbors meet neighbors, and friends come together to create lasting memories for years to come.
