40 Ways to Holiday, Day 7: November 29

2 comments

In 2017, there are exactly 40 days from Thanksgiving Day to New Years Day. And with the elimination of the eighth floor display at Macy’s in downtown Minneapolis and Holiday Lights in the Park in Saint Paul, along with the disappointing change from tradition at Holidazzle, more people than ever are looking for new holiday activities. Enter “40 Ways to Holiday.” Each day between November 23 and January 1 will have at least one event worth checking out, along with plenty of giveaways along the way! Find the full list of days here.

Day 7: Wednesday, November 29

Featured pick: Wells Fargo WinterSkate

Wells Fargo WinterSkate runs through February 11 in Downtown Saint Paul.

Enjoy the holiday lights of Rice Park and skate outdoors in Downtown Saint Paul at the annual Wells Fargo WinterSkate. Located next to Landmark Center, WinterSkate is free and skate rental is only $4 a person (it’s free if you show a Wells Fargo debit or credit card). They also host free 30-minute skating lessons on select Saturdays in December and January. Make sure to check their website before you go — the rink is closed to the public Monday through Thursday nights, closing at 4:50 p.m. Also, if you’re loading up the car with the kids from the neighborhood, make sure their parents sign a waiver before you take them downtown. It’s available online.
