Skating at Washington HarborIt's cold out and dark early - but don't hibernate!  Instead, come join Healthy Living @ Himmelfarb for their winter kick-off event: Ice Skating at Washington Harbour.

On Friday, January 31 at 5 p.m. we'll set out on foot from Himmelfarb Library to ice skate; you can also meet us at the rink at 5:30 p.m. Healthy Living @ Himmelfarb has arranged a group rate so $10 will secure both your entry and skate rental.  Register now to reserve your space!

The ice rink at Washington Harbour is the largest outdoor rink in the DC area and is even larger than the rink at New York City's Rockefeller Center. As you skate, you can enjoy Potomac views during the daytime and the winter lights after dark.
