SkatingAt Festival is in Adelaide this Winter.
The SkatingAt Festival is in Adelaide this Winter and it promises to turn Victoria Square into a world of enchantment, magic and wonder with an open-air ice rink, rides, entertainment and food and drink.
Ice Skating Rink
At the heart of the SkatingAt Festival, is the ice skating rink. They offer Kanga ride-ons for beginners. You can see these blue Kangas in our photos below. If you went along to Santa’s Wonderland last year, you will be familiar with them. They are great as they give you the option to push them around as something to hold onto, or a child can sit on it and can be pushed around for a ride.
Ride a snow tube down an icy slope. The tube is an inflatable one and Adults can ride with a child on their lap.
