This seems rather unprecedented to me, but it could also be that I never paid attention. I honestly have never heard of ice skating at Fenway. Have you? Well it was announced this week that Fenway is hosting a free skating event on 1/3 and 1/10, but you have to get tickets. 3000 tickets are going to be distributed on Saturday 12/19 from 9am to 11am.
Mayor Thomas M. Menino, in partnership with Sun Life Financial, the National Hockey League (NHL) and the Boston Bruins, announced today that thousands of children and families in the City of Boston will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to skate on the ice at Fenway Park. The announcement was made by Bruins legend Ray Bourque on behalf of Mayor Menino, who was unable to attend this afternoon’s press conference. City of Boston residents will be able to skate for free at Fenway on Sunday, January 3 and Sunday, January 10 as part of the City’s Inaugural celebrations. In collaboration with Sun Life Financial, the City of Boston will give away over 3,000 tickets to the free skate days at various locations throughout the City on Saturday, December 19, from 9-11 a.m.
It's been many years since I've strapped on a pair of ice skates. Looks like there's 16 locations to pick up tickets, scattered throughout the city. Now I just need to decide if I'm willing to brave the cold.
