Downtown Academy is working on a class project. We chose our class project to promote the upcoming ice rink on the Fulton Mall. This is the first of its kind, in downtown Fresno. It’s a big deal and hopefully its first year will be a success.
Tickets will cost $8/child and $10/adult. The ticket includes skates AND validated parking. Around 30 tickets need to be sold, each hour, in order to break-even on the cost.
The outdoor ice rink will be located in the center of the Mariposa Plaza. It will be open everyday from Nov. 8th - Jan. 13th (depending on the weather). The ice rink will be made out of REAL ICE. Surrounding trees will be decorated with Christmas lights. Several nights will have a different theme.
We are planning on choosing a day to host our own theme! Things aren’t finalized, yet, but a majority of the class wants to devote December 14th, a Friday, for a big ugly sweater theme. Part of the plan is to have a Christmas movie projected onto a screen. Families and young adults are all welcome. We talked about keeping it 21 and over after a certain time so we can sell beer on the Mall. Drinking and ice-skating! AH! Being 21 is still new and exciting, to me!
Again, nothing is final but I’ll keep you all updated with more details!
