The official opening day celebration of Rockefeller Center’s iconic ice skating rink will be held on Tuesday, October 16. During this time, stop by for a morning skate with the star of the new Charlie Chaplin musical, Rob McClure! Portraying Chaplin, he will be joined on the ice by Sea Grill and Rock Center Cafe chefs, Chef Yuhi Fujinaga and Chef Antonio Prontelli.
However, if you are really excited about putting on your skates, the rink’s official first day open will be Saturday, Oct. 13, with the first skate at 7am. Rink hours are from 7am to midnight.
Also, the 1,500-square-foot, free-standing cranberry bog is returning to Rockefeller Center Oct. 16 & 17, from 10am-4pm. Watch real cranberry growers demonstrate the harvest process while discussing the taste, health, and heritage of the cranberry.
