Mel’s Rink, the newest attraction on Governors Island, is having a festival to celebrate skating and the great game of hockey! All proceeds will benefit the Mel’s Rink Foundation, who seek to positively impact the lives of children with different needs by teaching them to skate and play hockey.

Bring your own skates or rent them at the rink! Hockey sticks and pucks provided. Both on-ice and off-ice hockey games will be played to learn or improve your hockey skills! All ages and levels welcome.

All are welcome to attend. On ice games to include an obstacle course and a chance to shoot for a $1000 cash prize! Plus, off ice games galore….and huge inflatable misting tents to keep everyone COOL. Give the password “Mr. Cool” and receive 25% off general admission.

The IceBox will be open for visitors to cool down with refreshing food and beverages. This includes Frosty Craft Beer, a variety of wines and Frozé Snow Cones, hot dogs and Lumpmeat Maryland Crab Cake Sliders. 10% of the proceeds will be given to Mel’s Rink Foundation!
