When you can go ice skating with drag queens in Minneapolis

Those who visit downtown Saint Paul in the winter know about the annual Wells Fargo WinterSkate near Rice Park. It’s a romantic activity.

That’s not the only Wells Fargo WinterSkate in town. Loring Park in Minneapolis has a larger rink that’s less busy. And with the big game in town, organizers on the west side of the Mississippi are planning 10 days of activities leading up to February 4.

On Saturday, February 3, drag queens will skate which makes me giggle just thinking about it. They’ll be there from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Additional events include a skate party and viewing of the movie, “Remember the Titans” on Friday, February 2 and a viewing of the big game on a big screen on February 4.

Best of all, it’s free to skate and you can rent skates for free when their warming house is open: 3:00 – 9:00 p.m. Mondays – Fridays, 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. Saturdays and 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Sundays. They’ll be open until 10:00 p.m. on Super Bowl Sunday.

Wells Fargo WinterSkate at Loring Park is open until March 4. Learn more here.
