RAPID CITY, SD – Make plans to ice skate at Main Street Square during special events this season.

Don your ugly sweaters and join others on the rink on Friday, Dec. 5, from 5 to 9 p.m., for entertainment, prizes and more. The Ugly Sweater Skate Party is sponsored by Conrad Electric and Signs.

“Ugly sweaters have become a holiday tradition, and we can’t wait to see what people will wear to the Square,” said Megan Whitman, executive director of Main Street Square. “Be creative and join us for the first ever Ugly Sweater Skate Party.”

Teenagers looking for something to do on Friday nights may join in on Lights on the Ice Teen Nights held monthly. Each party features a light show and today’s top hits provided by JDProductions. Teen Nights will be from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 12, sponsored by Sonic Drive-In; Friday, Jan. 2, sponsored by First American Title; and Friday, Feb. 13, sponsored by Re/MAX.

“Last year, we had a great response for Lights on the Ice Teen Night and we are excited to once again offer a special night for our local teens,” Whitman said.

Other special events and parties scheduled are Movies in the Square at dusk on Dec. 6, 13 and 20; Downtown Countdown on Dec. 31; Heroes Skate Party on Jan. 17; Rodeo Skate Party on Jan. 31; and the Last Day to Skate Party on Feb. 28.
