Sleigh bells ring in the holiday season at Downtown on Ice, as you skate under the sun and stars at LA's top outdoor ice rink and take advantage of this year's assortment of FREE concerts. Pershing Square comes alive with a free winter concert series December 17-January 6 on the stage adjacent to the ice rink. Serving up a medley of music to enhance the holidays, concert performances range from upbeat pop to blues, acoustic, and more.

Top talent takes the stage with artists such as Grammy-nominated Lisa Haley. She is sure to add a special twist to the holidays with her electric-blue violin, one-of-a-kind "cornbread" voice, and unique Cajun style. Stone Soul serves up classic soul & Motown hits. Their smooth renditions of timeless hits from legendary artists have made them sought after recording artists for Stevie Wonder, The O'Jays, Diana Ross, BB King, and others. For an unforgettable entertainment experience and cool reggae jams, Urban Dread hits all the right notes.

As a perfect get away from the workplace, Pershing Square boasts a one-of-a-kind lunch break with weekday concerts from noon to 1:30pm. Saturday nights are packed with holiday jams to skate the night away with friends and loved ones from 8:00pm-10:00pm. Finishing off the weekend, Sunday afternoon offers easy listening to wintery tunes from 2:00pm-4:00pm.

Over the past decade, Downtown on Ice at Pershing Square has become the number one winter destination for families, thanks to sponsorship from the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks and Councilmember José Huizar (9th District). Located at 532 South Olive Street, this stunning facility is open everyday (including holidays) November 15, 2012 through January 21, 2013. Other events this holiday season include a Winter Holiday Festival, championship skating exhibitions and Snoopy "mini" showcase performance, broomball games, and more.
