The rink occasionally hosts special events like this one in January 2016...
Catch Kristi Yamaguchi for a book reading and Polina Edmunds
performing with the San Jose Skaters at Downtown Ice.
Join us at 11 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016, for your chance to join American
skating’s greatest champions in promoting reading and families, through this
Kristi Yamaguchi's Always Dream Foundation event.
The event will kick off by a short performance of "Skating in Fairytales"
by Polina Edmunds and the San Jose Skaters, followed by Kristi reading
from children's books that she has authored.
Hicklebee's Bookstore will temporarily set up shop for you to buy Kristi's
children's books on site.
Downtown Ice will be open for those wishing to skate at regular
admission prices: $13 for 10 and under;
$15 for 11 and older (includes skate rental).
The mission of Kristi Yamaguchi’s Always Dream Foundation is
to inspire underserved children to reach for their dreams through innovative
reading programs and by advancing the cause of early childhood literacy.
Polina is the 2015 Four Continents Champion, 2014 U.S. Senior Ladies Silver medalist, 2014 Olympian and 2014-2015 World Team Member.
