Ring in the holiday season in Temescal! Join us the weekend of December 1 and 2 for the 2012 Temescal Holiday Skate & Stroll, from 12-4pm both days. 49th Street between Telegraph and Shattuck will be closed for the event.

This year's event is skating sensation for the whole family! We're bringing back the highly successful Temescal faux-ice skating rink, and partnering for the first time ever with local business Funktion Skateboards. In addition to skating on our rink, you'll be able to watch live skateboarding demos and check out cool skateboarding apparel and equipment. The neighborhood will be decked out with lights, decorations, live music, and crafts. We'll also have plenty of holiday cheer-- popcorn, candy canes, hot chocolate, egg nog and lively merchant booths await you on Telegraph Avenue throughout the weekend. And who knows...maybe Santa will show up!
