Opening Day @ Safeway Holiday Ice Rink

It was quite an icebreaker at the 12th annual opening for the Union Square Ice Rink, a holiday tradition that attracts thousands of locals and visiting tourists. The ceremony included host Donna Sachet, a performance by cast members from the new musical Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, skating by U.S. National Pair and Olympic Champions Alexa & Chris Knierim, four-time USA National Champion Cornell Freeney, and Drag Queens On Ice star Paju Munro.

After the ceremony, children from Bessie Carmichael Elementary School and Tenderloin Community School took to the ice to ring in the holiday season of skating. The rink will be open through January 20.
