Skate the Air Canada Ice Rink

Skate the Air Canada Ice Rink

The Market has partnered with Air Canada to create Melbourne’s first outdoor summer ice rink for Christmas!

The Air Canada Ice Rink will pop-up under the Market’s 140-year-old historic sheds and invites you to enjoy the magical spirit of a northern hemisphere Christmas during the first three weeks of Australia’s summer (1–24 December 2018).

The rink will offer cool, festive fun for skaters of all ages and rink-side treats will include coffee, maple syrup ice cream from the Market’s Geloso Gelateria, Canada’s legendary poutine (a national treasure of French fries, cheese curds and gravy), plus fairy floss and popcorn for little ones.

So whether you’re a total pro, a little bit wobbly, or have to hold onto the rink for dear life, it’s time to get your skates on!
