LA Kings Holiday Ice will not take place this Holiday Season and will re-launch in 2021, the LA Kings organization announced today in conjunction with American Sports Entertainment Company (ASEC), the operators of each outdoor rink.
Three special Outdoor Ice Rink locations throughout Southern California, LA Kings Holiday Ice 2020 would have again been located at Westfield Valencia Town Center (24201 West, Valencia Blvd. in Valencia); Westfield Topanga (6100 Topanga Canyon Blvd. in Woodland Hills); and L.A. LIVE (800 W. Olympic Blvd. in downtown Los Angeles).
“Due to COVID-19 and following the guidance of State and local health officials, we have made the difficult decision to not offer LA Kings Holiday Ice this year,” the LA Kings and ASEC said in a joint statement. “Safety of our guests and staff is most important and we look forward to returning next year so this wonderful Family Tradition can continue.”
LA Kings Holiday Ice is customarily open to the public for skating each November through January.
This would have been the fifth consecutive year the Kings have hosted an outdoor Ice Rink in Woodland Hills and 2020 would have been the second straight year in Valencia. The LA Kings and AEG opened the first Holiday Ice Rink at L.A. LIVE in 2009.
