Montgomery County, TN – Montgomery County is thrilled to announce the opening of the Downtown Commons Winter Ice Rink on November 23rd, 2018! This is the second consecutive year for the outdoor rink, which will be significantly larger than it was last year.
During most of the year, the Downtown Commons is a large open lawn, but in late fall through early winter it is transformed into an ice rink. Although Downtown Commons was not complete when the ice rink opened last November, it was still very successful with more than 9,000 skaters and thousands of onlookers. This year, with the park completed and a larger rink, at least twice as many skaters are expected. Golly G’s will also be up and running ready to serve at Downtown Commons when the rink opens.
“Things are going to look a lot different this year! Downtown Commons will be wide open for people to enjoy. The outdoor rink, music and festivities will definitely add to the beauty of downtown during the Christmas season. We are excited about seeing all of the residents and visitors enjoying the ice rink,” said Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett.
Community support is instrumental to the success of the ice rink. F&M Bank has again stepped up to be the title sponsor of the rink. Servpro of Clarksville built and donated a festive new skate shack for the site. There are still some dasher boards (the boards that surround the rink) available for sponsorship for any interested businesses or individuals.
Downtown Commons Winter Ice Rink is scheduled to run November 23rd through January 21st, 2019. Operating hours will be Thursdays and Fridays 5:00pm to 10:00pm; Saturdays 11:00am to 10:00pm and Sundays 2:00pm to 10:00pm. The hours will be extended during school breaks and on holidays. Tickets are $12.00 for adults and $10.00 for children under 12 with discounts for military and APSU students. Private party rentals are also available.
