Today (Saturday) marks the opening of the Prince George Outdoor Ice Oval.

The official opening will be at one o’clock this afternoon, between the Kin Centre Ice Arenas and University hill in PG.

“Big shout-out to all of our fantastic volunteers who have been out in the freezing cold making ice, and also to our volunteers who help us with our skate rentals. It wouldn’t happen without those people,” explained Kathy Lewis, President of the Outdoor Ice Oval Society of Prince George.

Weather permitting, Lewis anticipates the oval should stay open until March.

The Outdoor Ice Oval charges an entry fee of $2 per person or $5 per family and will be open seven days a week from 10 a.m. until 8:30 p.m.
