We’re getting closer to the opening of one of the most anticipated parts of this year’s Rotary Lights display. TAKE VO LA CROSSE The Chad Erickson Memorial Ice Rink at Riverside Park is almost ready to open to the public. Organizers have had to wait until now for temperatures to get cold enough to flood the rink . and still have one more layer of ice to add before they can open. They hope to have that done in time to allow people onto the ice tomorrow evening. Once the rink is open . people will be able to skate between 10 in the morning and 10 at night every day. Organizers say the rink has been the number one request they’ve heard from members of the community for the past 22 years.
