New Year's Eve Ice Skating (Fairfield County)

Ice Skating in Fairfield County, CT

I used to celebrate New Year's Eve by staying up into the wee small hours, but now I consider the most indulgent New Year's celebration one that involves getting the kids to bed early--and there's no better way to tire them out than with a little ice skating. There are quite a few rinks across Fairfield County that will be open for public skating New Year's Eve (and if you have little ones not quite ready to hit the ice, bring them to Stepping Stones for a sock skating adventure!)
 

Sports Center of CT
The ice rink will be open for public skating from 2:40 pm - 4:20pm.  Or, if Lazer Tag is more your thing, stop in anytime between 10:30 am and 4:30 pm.
