A Winter Carnival Is Opening at the Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park

The cold never bothered us anyway!

The holidays may be over, but the Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park is still in full swing and will be hosting its annual Winter Carnival to melt away winter blues, according to a press release.

The week-long carnival will kick off on Friday, Jan. 26 at 6pm with the Opening Night Skating Showcase, featuring two-time Olympic skater Johnny Weir—who will be a 2018 Winter Olympics correspondent in Pyeongchang, South Korea with fellow skater Tara Lipinski for NBC Sports Group. Skater Kimmie Meisner, the Skyliners Synchronized Skating team, and members of Special Olympics New York will also be in attendance at the Opening Night Skating Showcase.

Throughout the week, there will be a mix of various kid- and adult-friendly activities, such as a silent disco; yoga sessions; SkateFest for ice-skating lessons with Learn to Skate USA; an Ice Ball to dress up and waltz on the rink; kids’ puppet shows; cornhole games; and a cozy sweater pup meet-up. Every day, visitors can take a broomball or curling lesson on the ice rink.

The Brewhouse will be reopening in the northwest corner of the skate deck, serving pretzels, bratwurst, and beer and mulled wine for adults. The beer garden-style tent will host special events such as live band karaoke, dueling pianos, trivia, board games, and more. 

Skate rentals are $20, and admission to the rink and all activities are free. The Winter Carnival will be open Monday-Friday, 5-10pm and Saturday-Sunday, 12-10pm and runs from Friday, Jan. 26 through Sunday, Feb. 4.
