Holiday Festival on Ice

KANSAS CITY, MO, DECEMBER 2, 2013: The Rink at Burlington Creek is in full swing since opening its doors for the ice season, November 25th. This is the second ice rink season at The Village at Burlington Creek (formerly the Tuilleries) and has gained much buzz around the community.

The Rink is an ice rink during the months of November thru the beginning of March. During the off seasons, The Rink converts to the powder soft volleyball courts, The Sands at Burlington Creek, providing “the poshest place to play year round!”

The Rink will offer numerous events throughout the ice season. The Holiday Festival, showcasing local ice sport athletes, will be December 7th from 7-9:00 pm. Children of all ages will be invited to skate with Santa. Patrons who bring canned good items to support Harvesters will receive a free commemorative photo with Santa. S’mores by the fire pits and delicious hot chocolate for all.

The Rink at Burlington Creek offers public skating, Learn to Skate, Learn to Play Hockey, Pond Hockey Leagues and Open Broomball. Broomball is pond hockey with non-skates and without the need to know how to skate. The Rink can be rented out for private events, company/group events, team practices or schedule a birthday party and a local figure skater or hockey player will host and teach the group basic skills.

Ken Morrow, President of KCICE, is a member of the 1980 US Olympic ‘Miracle on Ice’ team and 4-Time Stanley Cup Champion who continually shows his passion for the sport through various outreach programs. “Our mission is to promote and grow ice based sports,” said Morrow. “With the addition of the new outdoor rink in The Village of Burlington Creek, we provide a vehicle, generating revenue, to help support ice based sports and local charities while offering all families an opportunity to experience the joy of ice skating.”

The Cost to skate is $7 plus $3 for skate rental. Hours of operation: Monday -Thursday 3:00 pm – 9:00 pm, Friday 3:00 pm – Midnight, Saturday 8:00 am – Midnight, Sunday 8:00 am – 9:00 pm.
