Winter is in full swing here in Baltimore & The Pandora Ice Rink, located in the Inner Harbor, has some new & exciting features this season! Most notable this year is the addition of The Penguin Pad, presented by WhyHotel and located directly next to the rink, the area allows skaters to take a break, warm up next to fire pits and enjoy the waterfront views.
“We’ve made the ice rink bigger and better this year with more spaces to hang out, play, eat and enjoy the holiday season,” said Laurie Schwartz, president of the Waterfront Partnership. “It’s a magical time to be downtown; with its harbor views, the new Penguin Pad and exciting events, the PANDORA Ice Rink has something for everyone and many reasons to visit the rink throughout the season.”
