Oly on Ice - Season 3 Canceled
After considerable thought, the City has determined it is best not to move forward with Oly on Ice for the 2020-21 season. This decision was not made lightly, as we recognize the social and economic benefits the ice rink provides for our citizens and our downtown. We understand and feel the same disappointment that many will feel with this announcement.
There are several factors that led to this decision, but community health and safety are the driving factor. Large group gatherings are not likely to be allowed in Thurston County in the near future. Even once it is safe to gather, the modifications required to safely operate the rink would create many logistical challenges and would detract from what makes the experience so special.
The City will continue to look for other ways to build community and provide positive activity in downtown. We look forward to the opportunity to bring Oly on Ice back for the 2021-22 season. Until then, please stay healthy and take care of yourself and your loved ones.
Thanks for a Great Second Season!
The second season of Oly on Ice officially wrapped on January 20, 2020. Thanks to all of the community members who came out to skate this season, we hope you had a blast! Stay tuned for details about next season. Interested in joining us as a sponsor partner for Season 3? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
