On Friday, November 16, 2018, Figure Skate Chicago had the pleasure to help open the McCormick Tribune Ice Rink in Millennium Park for its 18th season. For the fifth year in a row, we were the first skaters of the season at Chicago’s most iconic outdoor ice rink before it opened to the public at Noon on the same day.

The occasion received ample news coverage from local radio and TV stations, including The Jam’s Jon Hansen who chatted with us on-air as he delivered the morning weather forecast!

Welcoming winter by attending opening day at the McCormick Tribute Ice Rink in Millenium Park has become a yearly tradition for Figure Skate Chicago. We appreciate the invitation by the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events of the City of Chicago and extend a warm ‘thank you’ to all the skaters that joined us from very early in the morning: Antonia, Ava, Baylen, Brianna, Cate, Debbie, Isabella, Kelly, Leni, Marlo, Olivia C, Olivia F, Rebecca, Roxane, and Taara.
