Cold weather means it’s time to grab your gloves, hats, and scarves, lace up a pair of skates, and hit the ice. And with multiple pop-up outdoor ice-skating rinks, the Baltimore area is just the place to find the right location for fun activities as we approach the winter season.

The Inner Harbor Ice Rink, presented by Waterfront Partnerships of Baltimore, will have its opening debut for the 2022 season Saturday, Nov. 12. Each year, the temporary attraction brings residents and visitors to Baltimore’s harbor during the slower tourist months for winter family fun.

Throughout the holiday season, the rink will host Shake and Skate nights. DJ BJR will play hits each Thursdays from 6 to 9 p.m. focusing on a theme including “We Love the 80’s,” “Latin Heritage,” “Island Vibes,” “Ice Princess Party,” “Disco Ball,” “Winter Wonderland,” “A Night with Sinatra,” “Baltimore Club Music,” and “90’s Night.”

The seasonal tradition will be open at 201 E. Pratt St. starting tomorrow through Jan. 16.

THE AVENUE at White Marsh, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary, opened their outdoor ice-skating rink this week. 

The rink, located directly across from the AMC theater entrance, will sit next to the shopping plaza’s 40-foot Christmas tree. The 25th annual tree lighting ceremony will take place on Nov. 18 at 7 p.m. and attendees can join Santa Claus on the ice afterward.

Glen Burnie Outdoor Ice-Skating Rink, located on Crain Highway, would typically be open by now but they are in the process of rebuilding their rink and will open later this year.
