    Halloween decorations are still up in most Bay Area neighborhoods, but there is one spot that has already jumped to the next holiday season.

    San Francisco's Union Square ice rink opened for business Tuesday.

    The Safeway Holiday Ice Rink, presented by Alaska Airlines, hosted a "ice breaking" event to get things started.

    It was a balmy 68 degrees for the party. 

    The ice rink will stay open through Jan.  20.

    Ticket prices are $11 for adults and $7 for children eight years old and under. Skate rentals will cost you another $5.

    The hours are 10 a.m. – 11:30 p.m. every day of the week.

    A portion of ticket proceeds benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco and the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department.
