The City of Huntington Beach unveiled today a new ice rink in the City’s well-known Pier Plaza, opening Friday, November 26, 2021. This exciting new offering is part of the City’s Surf City Winter Wonderland event taking place November 26, 2021 through January 2, 2022. Surf City Winter Wonderland will transform downtown Huntington Beach into a holiday destination by providing various winter activities, such as ice-skating, live entertainment, festive programming and more.

“Surf City Winter Wonderland is a great way to reimagine the holidays in Surf City and make new memories with your family,” said Mayor Kim Carr. “In Huntington Beach, we are always looking for new ways to activate our downtown and provide family-friendly programming for our residents and visitors. Thanks to our partnership with Ice-America, we have an opportunity to bring this fun and merry event to our City.”

The ice rink will be open daily beginning the Friday after Thanksgiving during the following hours:

  • Monday - Thursday from 2:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m. (November 26-December 19)

  • Friday and Saturday from 10:00 a.m.–11:00 p.m.

For even more fun, our downtown shops and restaurants will also be taking part in Surf City Winter Wonderland by offering various promotions for the holiday season. Businesses throughout the area will be decked out in festive holiday décor.
