Zoo Lights and Ice skate in one afternoon

The wind is nippy, snow has already fallen, cheerful twinkling lights are going up around town. It’s almost time for the Holidays!

What better way to spend a brisk winter day this December than with your family ice skating on the new Indigo Frozen Fountain Ice Skating Rink followed by an evening spent strolling through Zoolights at Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium?  Add to your family’s holidays traditions this year and enjoy the fun and excitement to be had this winter season around here on the water. Oh, and don’t forget to warm up and refuel at one of the cute little cafes or locally owned restaurants down at Point Ruston.
