Winter Celebration - Ice Skating and Christmas Village

Let's celebrate the holiday season with a day in Uptown enjoying all the winter season has to offer. We'll start with lunch and shopping at the Christmas Village in Romare Bearden Park. During the month of December the park comes alive with a replica German Christmas village full of seasonal shopping, food, and performances. Enjoy roasted nuts, hot drinks, and bratwurst while browsing the holiday crafts and gifts. Entrance to the village is free. (http://www.cltchristmasvillage.com/).

After we've had our fill at the Christmas village we will walk over to the Nascar Hall of Fame where an outdoor skating rink is setup during the holiday season. Skating costs $14 for the day, or $10 if you have your own. Tickets can be ordered online in advance (with a fee) or bought the day of CASH ONLY. (http://holidayonicecharlotte.com) I will post details on the day of the event for where to meet. If you would like to carpool from various parts of Charlotte to save on parking, please post where from. Hope to see you there!

    Since this is a "new in town" group, additional info about where things are located would be super appreciated. I have been walking in the rain and can't find the place yet.

    It is looking like rain all day, and I am not sure of the status of the events in that case. I will be at the BB&T steps in a gray coat and hat for anyone who does still want to try. Worst case we just head to Amelie's for some hot cocoa hangs :)
