Downtown on Ice Ed Fuentes

This morning, U.S. Figure Skater Michelle Hanabusa hit the ice to open the L.A Kings Downtown On Ice at Pershing Square, now in it's 10th year.

Downtown on Ice is open noon to 9pm Monday through Thursday, with hours pushed to 10am to 10pm over the weekend. It's $6 for a one hour skate, plus $2 to rent the shoes. Skaters arriving via Metro, Metrolink or the Montabello Bus Lines get $1 off.

As for Hanabusa, 16, the National Showcase Champion led the skating demonstration this morning. She's also quite the budding fashion designer, crafting her own outfits including the black one shown here. She comes Downtown from Palos Verdes to select special fabrics that fit criteria needed for competitive figure skating. I say that makes her an official Downtown artist.

With the potential laughs at our sun-dulled skating skills and the free WIFI, shall we have a Holiday Downtown Blogger Night at Downtown on Ice?

  • Open everyday until January 21, 2008.
  • 12pm to 9pm on Monday through Thursday
  • 10am to 10pm on Friday, Saturdays and Sundays
  • Special extended Holiday hours for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years will be announced via the website.
  • Check the website for Free Youth Hockey Clinics.
