Ice Palace will open Oct. 26

RIVERSIDE – The Riverfront Park Ice Palace opening has been postponed to Oct. 26 because of unseasonably warm weather. The Ice Palace was originally set to open Friday.

Riverfront Park Assistant Manager Debby Dodson reported that “the warm conditions make it very difficult to be sure we won’t lose the ice overnight and have to build it back up again.”

And when it opens, the Ice Palace will have a new Olympia ice resurfacer.

After 35 years of service the Zamboni has been retired.
