Sculpture Garden Ice Rink Opens

Please note: This event has already occurred.
Sure, the sun sets before 5 p.m. these days, the leaves are peeling off the trees and it's only going to get colder in the weeks and months ahead. But for all the marks one can make against winter, there's one undeniable plus: the ice skating rink at the National Gallery of Art, which somehow manages to retain its "best kept secret" appeal year after year. Weather permitting, the rink opens for the season Saturday at 10 a.m. At the Sculpture Garden.
