Ice skating on Indian Hill
There aren't many opportunities for outdoor ice skating in southern California. But a small ice rink at Indian Hill Boulevard and Second Street will be open to the public until 9 p.m. today. Just a warning though, the ice is not real. It's actually a polymer compound sprayed with a non-toxic glide enhancer called "synthetic hybrid ice." Either way, the kids are definitely enjoying the experience and won't get cold if they take a tumble. Skates can be rented on site for $5.
Tonight is also the holiday tree lighting ceremony. Head down to the Claremont Depot for the event featuring Santa and Mrs. Claus, carolers and family activities. The event begins at 5 p.m.
