Patch photographer Byron Smith stopped by the free public skating session Saturday at Veterans Memorial Ice Rink. See who was there, who can skate backwards--and who took a very cute spill.
Public skating hours through March are usually Monday to Friday, but also occasionally on weekends. And while it may cost you your pride (if you’re a little wobbly on the ice); it won’t cost you a cent (unless you need a $6 skate rental). Hours can change so always check before you go. Details here.
