Kristi Yamaguchi Downtown Ice Opening Celebration

Join NBC Bay Area anchors Mike Inouye and Malou Nubla as they host the Kristi Yamaguchi Downtown Ice Opening Ceremony.

Kristi Yamaguchi, the 1992 Olympic gold medal winner in women’s figure skating, adds her name to support the rink for the ninth time, and her Always Dream Foundation will again be a rink beneficiary. 

This will be Downtown Ice’s 16th year in the Circle of Palms. More than 60,000 skaters and 120,000 of their friends are expected to visit the ice this year. The opening ceremony will kick off the season.  

During November, early December, and after the holidays in January, Downtown Ice is open Monday-Thursday 5PM-9PM, Friday 5PM-12AM, Saturday 12PM-12AM, and Sunday 12PM-9PM. During the winter break, the rink is open daily 11AM-12AM. Special hours apply to the holidays.
