Beginning this Saturday, December 8, if you're going shopping at the Mall Of America, you may want to bundle up, bring the whole family and your ice skates too.

The Mall of America will have outdoor ice skating available Saturday, December 8 - Sunday, January 27.  The rink, which is located at the MOA north entrance where you'll also find the iconic star sculpture, is open to the public.

Bring your own skates if you have them or you can rent skates for a fee from the Mall of America, with proceeds benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities.

Before you hit the ice, all skaters must complete a waiver.  Minors under the age of 18 must have the waiver signed by a parent or guardian. You can follow the link below to print off the waiver and fill it out before you head down.

Finding a parking spot at the Mall of America should be easier too, now that they've added the new park assist technology.
