For the Family, Ice Skating, Holiday, Benefit/Fundraiser, Children
CitySkate at CityScape Phoenix, the Valley’s largest and most visited outdoor holiday ice rink presented by APS, returns to Downtown Phoenix on Nov. 23 and is focused on bringing the community together with the debut of the new Unity Tree, festive art installations and the “Skate It Forward” philanthropic series. In its ninth consecutive year, CitySkate welcomes close to over 200,000 guests over its six-week run and has become an annual, time-honored tradition for families around the Valley. Along with the massive real ice rink, CityScape Phoenix transforms into a holiday paradise with thousands of twinkling lights, holiday happenings and Santa Clause appearances all season long. The official CitySkate Grand Opening and Tree Lighting Ceremony will kick-off all of the holiday merriments and skating season on Friday, Nov. 23 (Black Friday). The event will showcase a professional figure-skating routine, Santa Claus arriving via the Polar Express, a light show and the official tree lighting ceremony. Prior to the event from 12:00 to 7:00 p.m., those still in search of the perfect holiday gift can shop more than 30 local makers, curators and businesses specializing in high-end vintage clothing, jewelry and furniture at CityScape’s Alternative Black Friday Vintage Market.
