Seasonal winter temperatures have finally arrived in East Texas and it appears as if they're staying around for a while and so is the ice skating rink in downtown Marshall. The ice skating rink, a part of Marshall's Wonderland of Lights Festival, was slated to close at the end of the festival but due to favorable weather conditions the ice skating rink will be open nightly through Sunday, January 6th.

Ice skating sessions will be held nightly January 2nd, 3rd and 4th at 6p and 8p and then at 4p, 6p, and 8p on January 5th and 6th at the Samsung Ice Skating Rink in the Washington Square district in downtown Marshall. Although the lights are off and the Christmas decorations may be coming down, downtown businesses will be open and welcome your patronage.
