On November 13th, a group of business owners and community members are bringing the Humboldt Ice Rink back to Fortuna at Newburg park, for family fun during the holidays.
Dianna Rios, the executive director of the Fortuna Business Improvement District, oversees the six member committee. For a total of 8 weeks from November 13th to January 8th, Rios says “ The Ice Rink will be at Newburg Park, the same as last year although it will be a lot bigger.”If you are a community member looking to help, you can work shifts in the snack shack during skate season or businesses can donate money to offset funds of the rink. As of last year the rink had about 16,700 skaters and the goal this year is to reach 25,000 skaters. The Humboldt Ice Rink hopes to see you there!
