An Icy Wonderland at Rockefeller Center
Fans of the zany holiday cult classic Elf, starring Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel, will remember the The Rink at Rockefeller Center as the spot where Jovie (Deschanel) first returns the affection of overgrown elf Buddy (Ferrell). Beneath the radiant Christmas tree, the two share their first kiss, and from there, it’s happily ever after (with a lot of slap-stick thrown in, of course). On Wednesday, October 11, you too can once again experience the fun, friendship, and romance out on the ice as this iconic New York rink opens for another season. If you decide to head down on the 11th itself, you can catch the Grand Opening Ceremony, which will feature performances by Olympic ice skaters Meryl Davis and Charlie White. You don’t have to be an Olympian to fall in love with this New York treasure, though. So head over to 5th Ave, strap on your skates, and get ready to make some enchanting memories.
