Check them all off – Santa status.

Go Ice Skating in Campus Martius Park
Lace up with family and friends for a few laps around the rink. Between the holiday decorations and downtown lighting, it’s sure to be a magical experience.
Rink hours: Monday – Thursday 11 a.m. – 10 p.m., Friday 11 a.m. – Midnight, Saturday 10 a.m. – Midnight, Sunday Noon – 8 p.m.
If skating isn’t your thing, we’d suggest Showcase D’ Holidays – music, food, and a hot chocolate cocktail bar – held on Friday and Saturday nights.
