November 17, 2012 (Alpine) --Viejas Ice Rink formally opened its fifth season yesterday along with specific extended holiday hours at Viejas Outlet Center.

Now, when shopping, visitors are treated to views of excited skaters making their way around the cool, white ice rink, skating to the sounds of favorite Christmas melodies. Bedecked at one end with the traditional giant, decorated Christmas tree, the ice rink this year also has festive café lights. One of the decorative creeks nicely reflects the tree as you walk in from the east side of the Center.
