Outdoor Cedar Rapids ice rinks opening Thursday
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (CBS2/FOX28) —
Starting Thursday, those brave enough to head out in the cold have places to ice skate in Cedar Rapids.
Two artificial rinks at Bever Park and Arthur Elementary School will be open daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Warmer weather has prevented the rinks from open the past four years -- they require four inches of ice followed by a minimum of three nights with temperatures below zero to be safely frozen.
The ice rinks will stay open as long as weather conditions allow.
