DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The weather didn’t stop some people today from hitting the ice skating rink in Dothan.

“Ice and Lights” has officially opened up for the public and they are hoping for a great turnout.

Due to the growing success of last year, the rink has moved down Foster Street to allow for a bigger space this year.

The rink was open from 11 a.m. and closed at 10 p.m. on Friday.

The early weather kept some of the skaters away, but the workers expected a bigger turnout as the day went on.

It costs $10 to skate and you can join some ice skating people for the first time.

“We’ve roller skated, but this is my first time ice skating,” first-time ice skater, Cahlin Douglas said. “It’s pretty much the same technique. It’s a really fun opportunity to do and it’s really fun to skate and try not to fall.”

The rink will be open for skating on Saturday starting at 9 a.m. and will close at 10 p.m.
