RVA On Ice is back Friday

Lace up the skates and hit the ice both figuratively and literally.

A great way to burn off excess calories from Thanksgiving is back. From November 28th to January 4th you can let loose your inner Hans Brinker or Dorothy Hammil and ice skate in downtown Richmond. The rink located at 6th and 7th Streets on E. Broad Street officially opens up at noon on Friday, November 28th.
