Winter Carnival & Ice Skating on I4-C2?

This just in from Cape Ann TV’s Lisa Smith:

Will I4-C2 become a skating rink and downtown a winter wonderland?  Find out what Mayor Kirks thinks about this when she is interviewed by Meredith Fine on this week’s Cape Ann Report. They also discuss these topics: Birdseye property development; harbor moorings; new happenings in the Gloucester Police and Fire Departments; laptops for Gloucester students and more.  The show airs on Cape Ann TV Channel 12: Thursday @ 6pm; Friday @ 1pm and Sunday @ 3pm. You can also watch this and other shows online here.


  • Would love to skate at I4C2


  • I’d be happy to volunteer teaching some skating lessons if the rink gets constructed!


  • Skating rings were the thing coming up for sure:-)


  • Hi Nicole – I did speak with Carol Thistle at the city’s development office back in August. I’m definitely in! I got an outdoor rink up and running in PA where I used to live. It’s really not complicated. It’s basically a plastic liner filled with water using bales of hay as a perimeter.. If there’s a fire hydrant close by, it can be done! It would cost approx. $4,000 for a rink that is 100 ft. x 150 ft. Go to for details. I was an ice skating instructor at the Cape Ann Figure Skating Club when I lived in Gloucester years ago so I would certainly be willing to volunteer giving figure skating lessons if it comes to fruition. If you’re coming to the Holiday party on Friday I can talk to you about it. There’s nothing like skating outdoors on a frosty winter day!
