BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Ice at Canalside is set to open for the season on November 26 at 3:00 p.m.

Ice skating, curling, ice bikes and ice bumper cars will make a return as there were no winter activities at Canalside last year due to COVID-19.

“After a year away from the Ice at Canalside, we are more excited than ever to be able to host skaters and families at the rink again,” said Kevin Parkinson, VP of Finance and Operations Be Our Guest. “Our opening celebration will be a great kickoff to the 2021 holiday season in Buffalo.”

There will be a season-opening party that will include a DJ performance from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., a visit from Santa Claus from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., a firework show at 7:15 p.m. and giveaways and more.

Guests will be required to complete a waiver prior to participating in any activity at Canalside. They can be completed when you arrive or online here. Officials say masks are encouraged throughout the duration of your visit.

The Ice at Canalside will be open through February 27, 2022.
