It’s that time of year again. The Humboldt Ice Rink is back in town for winter. The ice rink is decorated for the holidays and holiday music is played for all to enjoy while skating. People of all ages can come and skate at Newburg Park in Fortuna. This is the third year that the Humboldt Ice Committee has brought the temporary ice rink back to Humboldt. The rink is staffed by many community groups who can earn donations to their organization from hours volunteered at the rink. The ice rink is supported by over 70 sponsors from local businesses. There is a snack bar offering all kinds of snacks from candy to hot chocolate. The ice rink is open until Jan. 7, 2018. The cost to rent skates is $12 for adults and $8 for children 12 and under. There is also a new special where people can receive a free pass upon purchasing five rentals for both adults and children. For more information, visit humboldticerink.com.
