Warren's Cold Rush
Embrace the winter cold with fun outdoor activities the whole family will enjoy throughout this Macomb County city on Jan. 5, 2013
It's that time of the year again. With snow on the ground and a nip in the air, we've struck cold in southeast Michigan! But you can make the best of the winter weather at Warren's Cold Rush, Jan. 5, 2013.
Starting at 11 a.m., head to Warren's City Square – located off of Van Dyke and north of 12 mile road – and you'll find a slew of events happening all day to help you enjoy the chilly elements. First, glide by the ice skating rink, where families can skate for free starting at 11 a.m. You can continue skating until 10 p.m.
If you don't have skates of your own – no worries! You and your family can rent skates at $3 a pair.
Kids a little wobbly on the ice? They can learn how to ice skate for free at the rink. Stop by the rink's learn-to-skate clinic from 12:30 until 2 p.m. for lessons.
From noon to 5 p.m., take the kids by the petting zoo, where they can get a close up look at the darling animals. Ever played putt-putt golf in the winter? Don't miss out on a free, frosty game of putt-putt with your family, also running from noon to 5 p.m.
One of the biggest attractions of the Warren Cold Rush is the ice carving show, which takes place from 11:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. Watch as skilled carvers chip, hack and sculpt a chunk of ice into a glistening artful masterpiece.
The event runs 11 a.m.-6 p.m., but skating will be open until 10 p.m. Admission to the 2013 Warren Cold Rush is free.
