Kids Week returns to Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park from Tuesday February 21 – Friday, February 24. Kids take over the skating rink and can join a free skate lesson with our favorite coaches, watch junior skaters perform on the ice, and skate around to music from iconic kids’ shows and movies.

The fun continues off the ice with themed activities and workshops each day from 9:30am – noon.

Most programs are designed for kids ages 4-6, but all ages are welcomed.

Daily Kids Skate Sessions

From 9:40am - 11:40am, kids rule the Rink! Family-favorite music will be playing on the ice, and skate aids are free to use during this session. Reserve your skate time today! Please note: admission to the rink is free, and you can bring your own skates if you have them. There is a fee for skate rentals.

Free Groups Skate Lessons

If your child dreams of gliding across the ice, this is their chance! During Kids Week, we are offering free 25-minute group skate lessons each morning. Instructors review the importance of proper safety measures, from learning how to adequately fall and stand, to safely marching across the ice. Participation is limited to children 12 and under. Lessons will be capped at 10 children. Due to limited capacity, we ask that families sign up for no more than one session for the week. Skate lessons will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

To participate in a skate lesson, book a skate time between 9:40am – 10:40am. Once you arrive at the park, check in at the ticketholders podium, get your skates, and meet our coaches by the by Bag Check window in the Lace-Up area. Our coaches will assign you to a lesson beginning at 9:50am, 10:25am, or 11:05am.

*Please note that skate rental is not included. Participants are welcomed to bring their own skates or reserve skate rental online in advanced.
