Hit the Ice

Pack up the car and head to Fountain Square for a couple laps around the rink! The U.S. Bank Ice Rink is up and running for the season and is the perfect place to make some holiday memories. Whether you’re a skating pro or fresh to the ice, there’s fun for the whole family to be had. Grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants after to make an entire day of it. Grab your blades and get to skating!

Decorate the House

The holidays are in full swing so it’s time to start decorating! Trek to your favorite tree lot or farm to pick the perfect tree for the home and start hanging the lights. This year, why not try to get as creative as possible by making your own ornaments as a new tradition with the family! When the house twinkles and shines with tinsel and lights, make some hot chocolate and admire your hard work!

Christmas Caroling

Bring Christmas cheer to your neighborhood or local retirement home by organizing a night of caroling! Brush up on your favorite holiday tunes and hit the town singing “Jingle Bell Rock,” “Silent Night” and “The First Noel” with the whole family. Make it a tech-free night for the whole street by inviting your friends and neighbors along for the merriment!
