Held this year on December 28, 6-9 p.m., the event will expand to include a costume contest and new “Knockturn Alley”, which will close off a sidewalk. Vendors slated to participate include Sunflour Bakehaus,  Dagwood’s Deli, Bellacino’s, and Professor Pemberton’s Wands.

While the rink does not offer skate rentals, a limited number of skates in various sizes are available to borrow.

Admission is $5 per wizard, $20 per house. Riley Park Ice Rink is located in the area of Grand River and Grove Street in downtown Farmington.
