Skate Into 2018

Grab your hats, scarves and warmest mittens and head to the winter wonderland of the Newport Skating Center on Commercial Wharf in downtown Newport. The outdoor waterfront rink is open for public skating from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Dec. 28 and 29 and until 11 p.m. on Dec. 30. Join the fun on New Year’s Eve when the rink, which can accommodate 150 skaters, hosts extended holiday hours: noon to 9 p.m. on Dec. 31 and from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on New Year’s Day, weather permitting. No skates, no problem; they are available to rent at the rink. Parking is free and the admission charge gets you three hours of skating time. So bundle up, come on down and skate into the new year.
