Ice Skating with Mahaffey

It’s that time again! The months full of holiday cheer and warm fuzzies are upon us. Hot cocoa, mittens, fireplaces and a hope for snow are just a few things that fill our thoughts; and for another year, Memphians will be able to enjoy a winter favorite. In a city where we we will never have the pleasure of a lake freezing, there is an award-winning Zoo that provides it for us.

For the third time, Mahaffey was given the pleasure of installing a structure large enough to host the Memphis Zoo’s 5,400 square feet of real ice. Once the sun goes down, beautiful Zoo Lights illuminate the pathways leading to the attractions. Along with the opportunity to ice skate, several sponsors have helped the Zoo host a 90-foot LED Ferris Wheel. Enjoy daytime skating between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., but be sure to check the calendar for nighttime rink hours and SunTrust Zoo Lights. You can purchase ice skating and Ferris Wheel tickets upon arrival.

Some of our employees took the afternoon to go take pictures (and ride the Ferris Wheel!) and get a sneak peak of what the night’s festivities hold. We can attest, this is one event you DO NOT want to miss! Enjoy! 🙂
