On Monday, Oct. 14, 2-time Olympic Medalist and World Champion figure skater Elvis Stojko joins New York’s Rockettes to open The Rink at Rockefeller Center’s 2013-2014 winter season.
An international landmark, this year The Rink offers new packages with advanced reservations available for the first time online.
Ribbon-Cutting with the Rockettes and First Skate with Elvis Stojko will take place on Oct. 14, 10-10:30 am.
“After 77 years The Rink is still enchanting for all who visit it,” said Nick Valenti, restaurateur and CEO of Patina Restaurant Group, which operates The Rink and its surrounding restaurants. “We are proud to be a part of its history and look forward to many memorable years to come.”
The Rink first opened in 1936 as the premiere outdoor skating pond built in New York City. Today, amenities include: night skating, a heated house for changing skates, piped-in music and rink-side dining. It’s located at 5th Avenue between 49th and 50th Streets.
