The Inner Harbor Ice Rink will return this year to kick off the holiday season in Baltimore.

The ice rink, operated by Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore, was closed last year due to the pandemic. 

Mayor Brandon Scott and leaders from the Waterfront Partnership, Downtown Partnership, and PNC Bank will open the rink on Nov. 12. 

The ice rink has become a winter tradition in Baltimore, with over 65,000 visitors over the past six seasons. 

The Inner Harbor will be packed with holiday festivities this year. 

Last month, the Christmas Village of Baltimore announced that the popular holiday market will return this season, opening on Thanksgiving weekend. 

The Inner Harbor Ice Rink, located atop the Inner Harbor amphitheater at 201 E Pratt Street, will be open daily.

The hours are Monday-Thursday from 12:00-10:00 p.m., Friday from 12:00-11:00 p.m., Saturday from 10:00 a.m.-11:00 p.m., and Sunday from 10:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.

Waterfront Partnership will offer free ice skating and skate rentals to the first 100 children to visit the rink.

Entry is $10 for adults and $9 for seniors, children, and members of the military. Skate rentals are $4. There is also a season pass available, which is $150 for unlimited visits. 

The ice rink will run from Nov. 12 until Jan. 17, 2022.
