Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest is a popular destination all winter, and it’s great for Dockside residents because it’s so close to home. The rink is particularly popular during this romantic time of year. This year, the Sweetheart Skates will be available for four sessions on Saturday February 14: 5 – 6:30pm, 7 – 8:30 pm,  9 – 10:30 pm, and 11pm – 12:30am. Free photos and complimentary Valentine’s Day flowers are included. A DJ will host the evening, so you and your sweetheart can skate to your favorite love songs. Tickets for the Sweetheart Skate are $20 per person for each session and include admission and skate rental. (Advance tickets are strongly encouraged as this event has sold out in the past). Champagne will be sold at the bar, with a special 2 glasses for 1 from 6-10PM for you and your date.
