Millennium Park Ice Skating Rink Opening Delayed

Posted: Updated:

Wet weather is postponing the start of ice-skating season at Millennium Park.

City officials announced Wednesday they are pushing back today's scheduled opening of the McCormick Tribune Ice Rink to Friday because of bad weather, Fox Chicago reports.

Unlike the nine ice rinks operated by the Park District, which don't open until Nov. 28, the Millennium Park rink is run by the city's Department of Cultural Affairs.

Skate rentals cost $10 at Millennium Park.
