NORMAN — Sunday

· Last day to skate: The last day for the Norman Outdoor Holiday Ice Rink presented by Marc Heitz will be Sunday.

Hours will be 1pm-8pm.  We believe that outdoor activity is one of the healthiest therapies for children and adults. So as to encourage this we are asking a special commitment from children. Any child willing to promise not to play violent video games for 24 hours will be able to skate for 1/2 price...$5 our last day
