GENEVA COMMONS BRINGS ICE SKATING RINK TO THE GREEN
The recent completion of the major renovation to the Geneva Commons courtyard area – “The Green” – provides the ideal setting for an ice skating rink during the holiday season. The rink will open on Saturday, November 17, 2018, at the outdoor shopping center and operate through Sunday, January 13, 2019. Other holiday attractions include Santa’s arrival and annual Christmas tree lighting on Friday, November 23.
“We couldn’t be more excited about this year’s holiday season,” says Cathy Charhut, property manager of Geneva Commons. “We’ve had a chance to test drive the new gathering area with various events on The Green during the summer and fall, and response from the community has been amazing. It’s the perfect spot for an ice skating rink, and it’s such a fun and healthy way to wind down from holiday shopping.”
