On Joel Coliseum Annex Ice Rink’s crystalline skating surface, ice carvers jovially mingle and practice maneuvers during frequent public-skate hours. After lacing up a pair of bladed boots and wobbling to the rink’s entrance, skaters can venture out onto the ice, flying across the slippery terrain like penguins running down a slip ‘n slide. On Friday nights, a live DJ blasts requested tunes from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. to enliven pirouettes and pratfalls. Guests can purchase concessions and earn prizes by competing in frosty games or by accurately guessing the number of ice shavings scattered across the rink.
Winston-Salem Fairground Annex Ice Rink
Nestled behind the LJVM Coliseum—an arena that has hosted events ranging from the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship to Billy Joel concerts—stands The Winston-Salem Fairground Annex Ice Rink. The ice rink hosts public ice-skating, hockey leagues, and events throughout the year. Visitors can strap on their own cleaver-healed boots or a pair of rentals and take to the ice for public-skate sessions, youth and adult hockey, or figure-skating lessons. A live DJ serenades skaters during Friday Night Ice Jam, providing a fun soundtrack as skaters loop the official-size rink. The skating center also opens for groups and special events such as birthdays and office-ditch days.
