FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Parents, if you don’t want your children bored at home this holiday season, you’re in luck.
Thanks to a $5,000 donation from Old National Bank, there will now be six free skate days for children under 14 this season at the Headwaters Park Ice Skating Rink.

Dates for free skating for children are on Dec. 1, Dec. 8, Jan. 5, Jan. 19, Feb. 2 and Feb. 9.
The cost of attendance is $4 for children under 14 and an additional $3 still applies for skate rentals, or kids can choose to bring their own skates.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, capacity will be limited to 50%, or roughly 50 people.
Executive Director of Headwaters Park, Geoff Paddock says this couldn’t have come at a better time.
“To a vast majority of individuals, particularly young people that have had very little to do this year, we hope that we can add a little brightness, particularly through this holiday season. You can come down a enjoy the ice-skating rink,” Paddock explained
The rink will be open from Nov. 21, 2020 through Feb. 28, 2021.
