Kristi Yamaguchi Downtown Ice in San Jose presented by First Tech Federal Credit Union and Alaska Airlines Returns This Holiday Season

Now in its 25th year, the holiday downtown San Jose ice rink has been one of the finest seasonal displays in California. Skaters and spectators alike come to celebrate the holidays and make lasting memories in the only ice rink in the world surrounded by 32 palm trees – affectionately known as the Circle of Palms.

Skates will swoosh, people will glide, and lights will twinkle again in downtown San Jose, all thanks to Kristi Yamaguchi Downtown Ice in San Jose presented by First Tech Federal Credit Union and Alaska Airlines.

A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Kristi Yamaguchi’s Always Dream, which serves underserved children and their families with early childhood literacy programs, including the organization’s Always Reading program.
