Polar vortex benefits Sturgeon Bay skating rink

Ice skaters are off to a late but solid start in Sturgeon Bay thanks to the polar vortex.  Despite the rinks' late opening, the extreme cold weather helped parks and recreation staff build up the ice surface.  The rink was closed when windchills became too dangerous. So, Municipal Services Assistant Colleen DeGrave expects more skaters to show up this weekend.



Sturgeon Bay's Ice Rink is located at Memorial Field on North 14th Avenue. The warming shack will be fully staffed and skates will be available for those who need them.
