December 6, 2013 (Alpine) – Viejas Outlets officially kicks off the holiday season this weekend with the lighting of one of Southern California’s largest trees and a free ice skating performance by regional, national and international ice skating competitors.
A massive 60-foot holiday tree will be illuminated at 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 7 at the Viejas Outlets ice rink followed by free ice skating performances by some of the world’s best ice skaters. The ice rink will be open to the public immediately before and after the event, with special pricing for kids, seniors and military.
The Viejas Outlets ice rink, which is larger than the world-famous Rockefeller Square rink, has quickly grown to become one the most popular holiday traditions in Southern California, with more than 33,000 visitors lacing up their skates on the nearly 10,000 square foot rink last season.
The Viejas Outlets ice rink hours are Monday-Friday 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday noon to 10 p.m., with special hours around the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. For complete ice rink hours and pricing, visit http://www.viejasoutletcenter.com/skate.html or call 619-659-2070.
