I’ve been waiting for the Ice rink at canal side to be built since I’ve heard about it in mid October.
Buffalo is my home city and I’m glad I’m able to witness a resurgence of my city.
We arrived at canal side just after 3 o’clock. When we arrived, we were faced with a two hour long line. Yet, even though the crisp wind hit out face, it was well worth the wait.
We were about to skate on a rink that is three times larger than the one in Rockefeller center.
I laced on my rented skates and prepared myself to hit the ice.
We skating around the rink. I tried to take in the scenery and people watch, all while trying to not to slip on the ice.
One of the most unique aspects of canalside was the ice bikes. Bicycles you can ride on ice! I wish I had the chance to take a ride. Maybe next time.
By the time the sun set, our feet were sore and it was time for us to leave.
We took a quick walk past the statue of Tim Horton as we left Canalside.
