City leaders in Eustis are always developing new ways to set the city apart. This fall, residents won’t be disappointed. The city will feature a downtown ice-skating rink, yes with real ice! The exact location is still being hammered out, but skaters are tentatively expected to hit the ice from November 19 to January 7.
The project will be dependent on community sponsorships, grants, and donations of approximately $115,000. The city budgeted $20,500 of its funds plus city services. Ticket sales, concession sales and rentals will make up the remaining revenue needed, according to Kristina Rosenburg, City of Eustis Public Relations Coordinator.
Admission prices have not been determined yet, but the city is planning discounted admission for children and groups of over 20 people. The skating rink will also be available for events and party rentals.
