Due to unusually warm weather conditions and near record setting temperatures, the Winter Wonderland Ice Rink at Merry Main Street will not be open this evening.
“We anticipate that the rink will be open for ice skating tomorrow,” said Steve Wright, city public information and communications. “The Main Street Express trackless train will be operating at the ice rink tonight.”
Merry Main Street will begin this evening from 5 to 10 p.m. in downtown Mesa. It officially kicks off with a tree lighting ceremony and the arrival of Santa Claus during a brief program at 5:45 p.m. at Main Street and Macdonald.
Merry Main Street will also continue this evening with the new Mesa Christmas Market featuring more than 30 vendors on the north side of Main Street at Macdonald, visits from Santa Claus, Santa’s sELFie Village, Jack Frost Food Truck Forest at Pioneer Park and much more. Merry Main Street will continue daily through Jan. 5. For more information, visit www.merrymainst.com.
