Sweetland On Ice Now Open

Beginning Friday, November 20 and lasting through February 15, 2021, the Great Lawn at Sweetland Amphitheatre will host a covered 5,500 square foot open-air ice-skating rink provided and operated by Sweetland Amphitheatre.

“We are excited to open Sweetland on Ice in beautiful downtown LaGrange for another year. This year we are doing our best to provide outdoor entertainment in a safe atmosphere by requiring face masks and limiting our capacity to only 200 people on the rink at a time, “ says Amanda Sugermeyer from Sweetland Amphitheatre. “The rink will also provide a healthy and safe outdoor activity and bring added spirit to the holiday season in LaGrange.”

The mask requirement at Sweetland is a precautionary measure to continue to go above and beyond the CDC’s required safety standards and to further help limit the spread of COVID-19. Staff will continue to place an emphasis on wiping down handles, surfaces, tables, doors, and all common areas.

“I applaud the city staff working so hard to try and provide Sweetland on Ice this year. I know people are eager to enjoy this outdoor activity but with Covid, the city staff has been focused on safety and they will be following CDC guidelines and social distancing protocols,” said LaGrange Mayor Jim Thornton. “I hope people will be able to experience the venue but also appreciate everyone’s compliance with the Covid safety rules.”

Please be aware that the Rink will be implementing a mandatory face mask policy this season. This means all guests, skaters, and parents will be required to wear a mask while in the facility.

–        Parents, guests, and ice skaters may remove mask to eat and drink.

–        All staff members are required to wear a mask at all times.

–        Any guests entering the facility without a facemask may purchase one from the front desk for $1.

The mask requirement is a precautionary measure to continue to go above and beyond the CDC’s required safety standards, and to further help limit the spread of COVID-19. Our team will continue to place an emphasis on wiping down handles, surfaces, tables, doors, and all common areas.
