The largest outdoor Ice Skating Rink in Atlanta is opened to all during the Holiday Season. Whether skating the ice or just observing, the annual Atlanta Event is sure to bring out the holiday spirit in you. The ice rink is nestled among hundreds of thousands of twinkling and gleaming lights thanks to the annual Holiday in Lights Festival. There’s also theatrical lighting along with splendid holiday music for all to enjoy.

The Ice Rink is now entering its thirteenth season and has become a time-honored Atlanta tradition. Located amidst the skyscrapers at Centennial Olympic Park in Downtown Atlanta, the skating rink evokes memories of other famous holiday spots such as New York’s Rockefeller Center or Bryant Park.
