Skate on Main, the iceless skating rink in downtown Danville, is attracting a steady flow of visitors this season, said Nick Wade, executive director of the Heart of Danville.
This is the second year that Danville’s non-profit main street organization has brought a skating rink to Weisiger Park during the holidays and winter break.
Right now, the rink is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and from 1 to 6 p.m. on Sundays. Once school is back in session, the rink will be open from 4 to 8 p.m. on weekdays. The rink will be open through Jan. 12.
