Crescent Hotel hosts ice rink ribbon cutting
The 1886 Crescent Hotel held a ribbon cutting for its Lifetime Memories Ice Rink on Saturday, Jan. 19, after planning the event for months.
The ribbon cutting was supposed to happen around Thanksgiving weekend but was put off because of unseasonably warm weather. Thanks to a polar blast, the hotel celebrated the second year of the popular local winter attraction.
“We have had such a positive response to Eureka Springs’ iconic winter attraction,” said Jack Moyer, hotel general manager. “We hated to delay the celebration, but Mother Nature would not cooperate. But now we are ‘officially’ open and ready for winter fun every day through Feb. 17 as long as the weather continues to cooperate.”
The new activities and hours for the skating rink includes open skating from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays; open curling at 4 p.m. on Fridays and Carrie Nation Hatchet Throwing from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
“More and more people are discovering Eureka Springs is a fun place to visit throughout the winter months,” Moyer said, “and our ice skating, curling, hatchet throwing, spa visits, hiking and mountain biking trails add to the full list of other winter attractions and activities now available in our iconic Ozark year-round vacation village.”
