The last day of the Newport Skating Center season is today, February 29th!

The Newport Skating Center will have extended hours of 12pm to 9pm and will offer FREE skating admission for the entire day, all courtesy of ALEX AND ANI, their presenting sponsor.

Skate rentals are also available on site from $3 -$5, as is skate sharpening for $5.

“Even with the mild winter we have all been experiencing, this season at the Newport Skating Center has been full of fun for all ages and has gone even better than we had ever anticipated thanks to the local community, the City of Newport and all our corporate and community sponsors,” said Michele Maker Palmieri, President and CEO of Waterfront Productions, the parent company of Newport Waterfront Events. “Stop by for a few more laps around the rink before we close for the season on Monday, February 29th.”
