Defying the groundhog’s prediction of imminent spring, the Minneapolis Park and
Recreation Board has decided to extend the season for its skating rinks by two
The rinks are customarily closed around Presidents’ Day when warm weather usually begins to make the ice difficult to maintain. But forecasts for continuing below-normal temperatures after this weekend prompted an extension to March 6 — weather permitting. The extension covers 47 rinks at 23 locations.
There’s always a silver lining if you know where to look!
