Baytowne on Ice Opens October 27 – See You There!

While we are supporting those who were affected by Hurricane Michael, it’s also important to support local businesses who are trying to bounce back from the disruption from the storm. We thought we’d let you know that the Baytowne on Ice skating rink opens October 27, 2018 this year, and as always, it’s going to be a great time. You can celebrate fall and winter like they do up north: on the ice, except at the beach. When you’re ready to blow off some steam or escape with a date night, go enjoy the winter festivities.

What You Need to Know About Baytowne on Ice

Located at the Community Broadcasters Skating Pavilion in the Village of Baytown Wharf in Sandestin. To get there, take 30A to Baytown Avenue East and head north (it’s the only way you can go). It’s just a mile up the road, and the village area – where all the action is – will be on your left.

Baytowne on Ice, which kicks off Saturday, October 27, will be open daily through February 2, 2019. The hours vary, though, so check the calendar here.

7 Ice Skating Safety Tips

Whether you’re an inexperienced skater or you grew up on the ice, it pays to play it safe – and these seven ice skating safety tips will keep you (and your family) from getting injured while you’re supposed to be having fun:

  1. Use skates that fit and provide strong ankle support. If your skates don’t fit properly, you’ll get blisters – and if there isn’t enough ankle support, you’ll be wobbly and risk injury.
  2. Don’t wear headphones on the ice. You need to hear other skaters approaching you to stay safe.
  3. Obey the rink’s rules, such as skating in the same direction as all the other skaters. Watch where you’re going, and stay alert and aware of your surroundings.
  4. Put helmets on young children and beginner skaters. A fall on the ice can hurt – and it can cause serious head injury.
  5. Have kids and beginners wear kneepads and wrist guards, if possible. While they’re not required to skate at Baytowne on Ice, they’re a good idea. (So are gloves!)
  6. Dress properly to avoid injuries from the cold. Ideally, you’ll be able to layer your clothing so you can add or remove as necessary.
  7. Stop to rest if you get tired and take a break to warm up if you get cold.
