On the Ice

Have you ever attended an Ice Ball, played broomball, or skated to music by your favorite boy bands? Welcome to a few of our icy activities and fun for Winter Carnival 2018!

Off the Ice

​There’s not just fun on the ice at Winter Carnival, you’ll also find plenty to do off the ice with friends, family, and even pets! Bring the kids for free programs like puppet shows, or take advantage of Winter Warmup classes like yoga. Play cornhole daily on the Upper Terrace, where you can also pop into the cozy Bank of America Lodge. Get your winter selfie at the Everblock Ice Castle on the Fountain Terrace, home to the always popular Silent Disco and dog-tastic Cozy Sweater Pup Meet-Up.
