The Seaside Lagoon, located in the heart of Redondo Beach King Harbor at 200 Portofino Way, will be the site of Seaside Ice, the South Bay's first outdoor ice skating experience, with skating available November 18, 2008 through January 11, 2009, from 11:00a.m. - 9:30p.m. on weekdays and from 10:00a.m. - 10:00p.m weekends. The eight-week holiday event will feature a 60x120-foot ice rink constructed on the Seaside Lagoon's sand in a picturesque position next to the east walkway.

Now having the opportunity to bring my experience as a skating entertainment producer to a hometown event, I look forward to working with the community on a shared vision of family activity and entertainment in the heart of King Harbor. To skate outside is a unique pleasure that I can't wait to share with the South Bay during the holiday season.
