Each year, we kick off the holiday season with celebratory events around Greater Des Moines (DSM). This year, there’s the Holiday Promenade, Jingle in the Junction, and even Virtual Visits with Santa, just to name a few. But there’s one thing that always puts me in the mood for the holidays — ice skating in Downtown DSM!

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, I wasn’t sure I’d have the chance to lace up my skates and hit the ice, but with extra safety precautions, including limited hours and reservations through a new ticketing system, I’m excited to finally get the chance to skate at Brenton Skating Plaza.

Here’s what to expect if you’re planning to skate in 2020:
