Outdoor ice rink is bigger and better

by Trinity Gruenberg

The outdoor ice rink in Long Prairie is ready for skaters to enjoy this winter season.

This year the rink is bigger and better with a size of 200 x 100 feet. It took 60,000 gallons of water to fill.

They held a soft opening of the rink on December 27, thanks to volunteers who helped to clear the snow.

“After about six hours of shoveling, snow blowing and four-wheeling the snow off the ice, Harley VanRuler went out and zambonied the ice twice,” explained Luan Thomas-Brunkhorst, director of the Long Prairie Chamber of Commerce.

The Lennes Family (Hayley & Rae/110 Coffee/Lennes Electric) stopped by to skate and help with the snow removal by shoveling and blowing snow. . .
