One of the cornerstones of the Niagara-in-winter experience – the TD RINK at the Brink – opens to the public for its third season on Thursday, December 1.
The TD RINK – Niagara’s answer to the iconic outdoor ice skating rinks at Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto and Rockefeller Centre in New York City – is located just a snowball’s throw from the brink of the world-famous Horseshoe Falls.
The signature Niagara Falls attraction of the CAA Winter Festival of Lights, the TD RINK offers public skating, skate and locker rentals and free helmets for those who need them, as well as a skate sharpening service and group rates for holiday outings, parties, school trips and corporate team-building exercises. RINK adds yet another unique and fun family experience to the CAA Winter Festival of Lights, which is already one of the most iconic festivals in Ontario.
TD, the title sponsor of the TD RINK, has generously agreed to provide six ‘TD Free Skate Days’. ‘TD Free Skate Days’ allow members of the public to experience the TD RINK at the Brink complements of TD. Additionally, the TD Comfort Crew will be in attendance at each ‘TD Free Skate Day’ providing complementary hot chocolate and a souvenir photo.
The ‘TD Free Skate Days’ are December 12 and 19, January 9, 16, and 30 and February 13. Visitors are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items or cash donations for Project SHARE in Niagara Falls, Community Care St. Catharines and Thorold or the Hope Centre in Welland.
Located adjacent to The Niagara Parks Commission’s Table Rock Welcome Centre, the TD RINK is in the heart of the CAA Winter Festival of Lights’ five-kilometer illumination route, featuring more than 125 animated displays, including the 21 world-famous Enchantment of Disney®. Visitors to the TD RINK on Friday evenings can also enjoy the Festival’s Niagara Falls Fireworks over the Falls presented by the Fallsview Casino Resort at 9pm sharp until January 27th.
“For the last three decades, the CAA Winter Festival of Lights has worked tirelessly to create a uniquely-Canadian wintertime tourism experience in Niagara Falls, Canada,” said Dino Fazio, General Manager. “Each year, that experience gets a little bigger and better, but the TD RINK has been a huge leap forward for the Festival – and for winter tourism in Niagara Falls.”
