Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield of WNY to sponsor free skate admission, rentals, and curling
The Ice at Canalside, presented by Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield of Western New York, is extending the skating season by opening the first weekend of March.
“It is no secret that we have had a rough winter, but with the weather cooperating this week, we feel we can give everyone one more weekend at the Ice,” said Lauren Moloney-Ford, general manager of Buffalo Waterfront. “As thank you to our customers, skate admission, rental and curling will be free the entire weekend sponsored by our official health and wellness partner, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield of WNY.”
Curling will be first-come, first-served, and available for reservation in the Upstate Honda Dealers admission pavilion. There will be no bumper cars.
Hours of operation are 4-10 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday.
Organizers said, “To visit the ice, take the NFTA Metro Rail to the Erie Canal Harbor Station stop, or there is ample parking in Canalside-area parking ramps and surface lots. Access to the rink is available from Main Street, Commercial Street and Marine Drive.”
