FORT WANYE, Ind. (WFFT) - Many families hit the ice on Sunday afternoon at Headwaters Park for the closing day of the 2019-2020 ice rink season before re-opening in November 2020.
Headwaters Park Ice Skating Rink concludes its current season at 8pm on Sunday after another record-breaking attendance season.
Last season, the rink attracted over 32,200 skaters with this year drawing more than 34,000.
Headwaters Park Alliance Executive Director, Geoff Paddock, presented a special surprise to the 34,000th skater who happened to lace up her skates for the 1st time on the rink's last day of the season.
Seven-year old Aliyah White beamed as Paddock handed her the candy-filled gift basket alongside her mother, Kaitlin Ward.
The family simply came to celebrate a friend's birthday, but received a sweet surprise before little Aliyah put her skates to the ice for her inaugural time around the rink.
