The Downtown Walnut Creek on Ice rink, due to close next week, will stay open another month.
The Walnut Creek Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Business Association have decided that the rink will stay open until February 15, instead of closing on January 18, Martin Luther King Day.
Walnut Creek Chamber president Jay Hoyer explained that the Winter Olympics will likely raise interest in ice skating, and that the rink, which is a huge attraction, will benefit downtown merchants. “Perhaps a future Olympian will get their start at Walnut Creek on Ice,” Hoyer said.
Each of the rink’s past five seasons has attracted around 45,000 people. For more information call 925-935-7669 (SNOW) or go to www.IceSkateWalnutCreek.com.
