Downtown Plaza ice rink offers Disney theme night
Sure, it’ll cost you $8 to go ice skating at the Downtown Plaza’s rink at St. Rose of Lima Park at Seventh and K streets in Sacramento, but did you know there are ways to keep the costs down? Take Thursday’s Disney-themed skate night, for example. People who come dressed in theme – Mickey Mouse ears, Disney or superhero apparel – get a free skate rental, which is usually an extra $2. DJ Shaun Slaughter is spinning holiday music and other tunes that evening. The event runs from 6 to 8 p.m.
