Holidays on the River? No, it’s Holidays on the Plaza now

Holidays On The River

Tuscaloosa’s seasonal ice skating rink has a new name and a new location this year.

Formerly known as Holidays on the River and located at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheatre, the rink’s move to Government Plaza required a more fitting name. Thus Holidays on the Plaza is born.

The event still features outdoor ice skating, and the Tinsel Trail attraction benefitting Tuscaloosa’s One Place is moving to the same location.

“We are excited to move this festive event from the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater to Government Plaza,” said Tuscaloosa Public Services Director Stacy Vaughn. “With increased visibility and proximity to local businesses and restaurants, we hope to make this event more convenient to the community.”

Ice skating begins Nov. 22 and remains open through Jan. 17.

Admission to Holidays on the Plaza is free, but guests must purchase skate passes to access the ice rink. Passes go on sale Nov. 1 and cost $15 for a daily skate pass.

Birthday and corporate rental packages are also available. Learn more about the event or pick up tickets when they go on sale right here.
