Memphis may not get much snow or ice, but we can still enjoy at least one traditionally winter-only pastime: outdoor ice skating. New this year to downtown Memphis, the Fourth Bluff Ice Rink will be open through January 31, 2017.

Here are the Memphis downtown skating rink hours:

Sunday: noon to 6 p.m.
Closed Monday
Tuesday – Thursday: 2 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Friday: 2 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Saturday 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.

It is $10 to skate, which includes ice skate rentals. The Fourth Bluff Ice Rink offers children and adult skate sizes. The rink is closed in case of rain.

But wait, there’s more!

The Fourth Bluff Ice Skating Rink opens tomorrow at 10am! Ten dollars includes skate rental. #skating #iceskating

The first 100 funnel cakes after 5 p.m. are just a buck!

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
