Ice skating returns to Savannah through the City’s partnership with the Savannah Ghost Pirates
SAVANNAH (Nov. 30) – The City of Savannah will join the Savannah Ghost Pirates for a ribbon-cutting ceremony today to officially announce Ghost Pirates Ice at the Savannah Civic Center, 301 W Oglethorpe Ave., at 3 p.m.
The ceremony will take place outside on the stairs of the Savannah Civic Center before a complimentary public skate (including skate rentals) at Martin Luther King, Jr. Arena. The skate will start at 3:30 p.m. until 5 p.m.
“The ice skating previously enjoyed by our community for just a few weeks a year is now extended through May thanks to this partnership with the Savannah Ghost Pirates,” Mayor Van Johnson said. “We will have the most affordable ice skating rates in Georgia, and I look forward to seeing additional programs that will expose all Savannahians to this exciting and fun time on the ice.”
Ghost Pirates Ice includes public skating, open skating and stick-and-puck sessions. In January of 2023, the inaugural season of the Ghost Pirates Adult Hockey League will begin with several leagues across a variety of skill levels.
General admission for public skating is $10 per person, $8 for children 12 and under, skate rental is $1 and ice walkers are $10. For the public skating schedule and more information, visit ghostpiratesice.com/public-skating
“Thanks to Mayor Johnson and the City of Savannah, we can provide an opportunity to skate, learn-to-skate, play hockey, figure skate and enjoy the world of ice all winter into the spring of 2023,” Ghost Pirates President Bob Ohrablo said.
