On the ninth day of a Chicago Christmas
In the summer it's a popular bar and outdoor restaurant but then almost overnight this space in Millennium Park is transformed into a magical ice rink
. During the winter months the ice-rink opens from 10am to 10pm, it's free and you can hire skates for $9. Over 100,000 visitors have skated around the rink's circumference since the beautiful park opened 4 years behind schedule in July 2004.
