Downtown Ice is Here!

Hawaiian Airlines and Kristi Yamaguchi are giving people in San Jose the opportunity to test out their skating skills. Downtown Ice opened on November 18th , my family and I enjoyed skating under the circle of palms in downtown San Jose. Downtown Ice is located in between the San Jose Museum of Art and Fairmont Hotel in downtown San Jose. The ice rink will be open from November 18th through January 29th, 2012.  Kristi Yamaguchi, who is best known for her 1992 Olympic Gold Medal will be at the Opening Ceremony 5 p.m. Monday, November 21. Yamaguchi, who has always supported the downtown ice, will not be performing but her former skating club the Sliver Stars Synchronized Skating Group will be performing a dance.
