Huntsville, Ala. – Skating in the Park and Federated Insurance – Michael Bishop wants every one of all ages to celebrate the New Year in a big way.  This year, for the first time, the rink will host two simulated Ball Drops on ice (powered by LED Orange) in Downtown Huntsville on New Year’s Eve – one for the kiddos and one for the older skaters.

RINK in the new year a lil’ bit earlier with New Year’s Eve at Skating in the Park: Lil’ Ball Drop!  Young skaters can enjoy non-alcoholic sparkling cider in Limited Edition Progress Bank Glow in the Dark Cups and countdown with DJ Boskii for a simulated Ball Drop at 9pm that will be projected onto the back of the Huntsville Museum of Art.

Media Partner, Rocket City Mom, commented, “It’s so exciting that Huntsville has a family friendly option to celebrate New Year’s Eve! Kids can party a little early and be home and off the roads well before midnight.”

Shortly following, the lights hanging over the rink will go out and glow sticks will take over!  DJ Boskii will change the playlist to a more contemporary track and another simulated Ball Drop will be projected onto the back of the Huntsville Museum of Art at midnight during the GLOW UP New Year’s Eve Party.  Guests are encouraged to dress up in their most glowing/light-up outfits and prizes will be awarded to those who shine the brightest!  Glow in the Dark accessories will also be provided for those who don’t bring their own.

We know you glowed up this year… Show it off at Skating in the Park! RINK in the new year with us as we dance and skate our way into 2019. Both New Year’s Eve events are included with the cost of admission to the rink and all are welcome.  Admission: $15 ages 10 and up; $10 ages 9 and under; $13 for groups of 10 or more; and $5 scooter rental.  There is a $5 discount for those who bring their own skates.
