LYNNFIELD — From mid-November through February, the MarketStreet shopping mall will open its ice skating rink for the fifth consecutive year. Weather permitting, the MarketStreet Rink will open the weekend of Nov. 10 with grand opening activities on Saturday, Nov. 11, that will include free hot cocoa, live entertainment, giveaways and more.
The rink will have an array of illuminated snowflake lights. It is situated on The Green, home to MarketStreet’s community events, performances and gatherings, has views of Reedy Meadow and neighbors such as J. Crew, Vineyard Vines, J.P. Licks, lululemon athletica and FuGaKyu Japanese Cuisine. A 200-ton refrigeration unit ensures optimal ice temperature, even in warmer temperatures.
New for this year, the rink will open at 1 p.m. on Wednesdays, to be in sync with neighboring communities’ public school early-release days and will have extended hours during school vacations. The rink is also available for lessons, private birthday parties, corporate events and charity fundraisers. Skaters may bring their own skates or rent skates at the rink.
Rink hours will be Monday and Tuesday: 4-9 p.m.; Wednesday: 1-9 p.m.; Thursday and Friday: 4-9 p.m.; Saturday: 10 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sunday: 11 a.m.-8 p.m.
