What’s more fun than outdoor ice skating in winter? Ice skating combined with music, of course. Our friends at SoundDown Party - Denver’s Silent Disco Company are celebrating their 5th Anniversary in 2019. So they’re throwing a FREE glow-in-the-dark silent disco on Saturday, January 5 from 4 p.m. tp 7 p.m. at Downtown Denver Rink at Skyline Park, 1601 Arapahoe St. as their way of thanking the Denver community for all the support through the years. Headphone rentals are complimentary, but you must register online via the Eventbrite link to reserve your set. Limit of up to (4) rentals per family, please. There will be a light show, live LED performers, and other delightful surprises, so bring the entire family out for some glow-in-the-dark winter fun, enjoy some hot cocoa, and skate and/or dance along to SoundDown’s special ice skating soundtracks. The event is FREE and all ages are welcome. Costumes are highly encouraged! Onesies, anyone?
