CRESCENT HOTEL HOLDS LONG-AWAITED ICE RINK RIBBON CUTTING

CRESCENT HOTEL HOLDS LONG-AWAITED ICE RINK RIBBON CUTTING

(Eureka Springs, Arkansas) — A ribbon cutting for the 1886 Crescent Hotel’s “Lifetime Memories Ice Rink”, an event originally scheduled to be held around the Thanksgiving weekend but was put off due to unseasonably warm winter weather, finally occurred last Saturday.  Thanks to a polar blast the temperature, which allowed perfect curing of the ice, saw a celebrated second year “official” opening of the popular local winter attraction.

            The ribbon was cut by (pictured) Elise Roenigk, hotel owner, and Dub Viersen of Dub’s Heating & Air, surrounded by those eager to skate.

“We have had such a positive response to Eureka Springs’ iconic winter attraction, we hated to delay the celebration, but mother nature would not cooperate,” said Jack Moyer, hotel general manager.  “But now we are ‘officially’ open and ready for winter fun every day through February 17 as long as the weather continues to cooperate.”

The new activities and hours for the Crescent Hotel’s ice skating rink include open skating from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Sunday through Thursdays, and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays; open curling at 4 p.m. on Fridays; and “Carrie Nation Hatchet Throwing” from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

“More and more people are discovering that Eureka Springs is a fun place to visit throughout the winter months,” Moyer concluded, “and our ice skating, curling, hatchet throwing, spa visits, hiking and mountain biking trails add to the full list of other winter attractions and activities now available in our iconic Ozark year-round vacation village.”
