“We are excited to move this festive event from the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater to Government Plaza,” sayid Stacy Vaughn, Director of Public Services for the City. “With increased visibility and proximity to local businesses and restaurants, we hope to make this event more convenient to the community.”

The skating rink will open starting November 22, and will remain open through January 17.
