Load up the car, lace up your skates and visit the Farm Bureau Winter Park at RVA on Ice for some winter fun near your Richmond new home. From ice skating to arts and crafts, this annual event is fun for the entire family. Nestled in the heart of downtown Richmond, this unique experience is available to residents through the end of the month.
In addition to ice skating, attendees will enjoy hot chocolate, s’mores, holiday music and warming up by a toasty fire pit.

The arts and crafts sessions are instructed by resident artist Diane Hayes. Additionally, holiday movies will be shown on the outdoor screen each Saturday. The final three Saturday movies are Arthur Christmas, Elf and Twelve Dogs of Christmas.
