Returning Thanksgiving weekend was the ice rink at Moline’s Bass Street Landing.

After a fight to make the ice, the Quad City’s only outdoor public ice rink, Center Ice, reopened on Saturday, November 30, 2013.

Rink Manager Chad McDermott said it took a lot of battling and manpower to get the ice frozen correctly.

“It’s been a rough couple of weeks,” McDermott said. “We’re finally to the point where we’re excited about opening up."

McDermott said admission is $5 and an additional $3 if you are renting skates. There will be food and beverages on site and football games on TV inside.

The rink opens at 10 a.m. and periodically a Zamboni will come out and resurface the ice. For information on skate sessions call 309-517-1930.
