Christmas Events Part 3: Ice Skating and Safaris for Christmas?
Last night I took the family to enjoy the Lights under Louisville which I mentioned in our first Christmas blog of this season. While our kids watched the lights we watched our kids smiling, pointing, and saying, “Cool! Awesome!” Sipping hot chocolate and nibbling on chocolate chip cookies rounded out this special Christmas memory for our family.
We hope today’s blog helps you make Christmas memories with your friends and family this season. Today we want to highlight one very traditional Christmas activity and one not so traditional Christmas activity.
With the first snow of the season falling this last weekend in and around Louisville the Holiday Ice Rink at Holiday Square at 4th and Jefferson seems like the perfect event to highlight. The ice rink features real ice and is set up just for the Christmas season, November 23rd – January 1st.
Prices vary from $9-$12 depending on duration and skate rental inclusion. Tickets can be bought and skates can be hired on site. The rink is open from 4pm-10pm Monday through Thursday, with longer hours Friday-Saturday, and shorter hours on Sunday. For more detailed information you should check their website here.
The second event is a Louisville favorite attraction but a unique Christmas event. The Louisville Zoo will be hosting their last Santa’s Safari for the season this Saturday and Sunday. There are three sessions: 10am, 12pm, and 2pm. Tickets can must be purchased online.
This event looks like lots of fun. Santa Clause will read stories, you will sing songs, and elves will help you create some great Christmas crafts. Holiday goodies and drinks will also be served by Mrs. Clause herself. You will also be able to take your photo with Santa. The event ends with a tour of the heated animal enclosures where you are able to interact with Zoo staff.
So whether you want to go to the North Pole and skate or take a Safari with Santa, you can do it all in Louisville. If you’d also like to sprinkle in some real estate Louisville to your holiday plans, Scott Boehnlein of Family Realty would love to help you.
