'Tis the season -- for ice skating! The weather's finally gotten cold enough for the much-anticipated seasonal opening of Boston Common's Frog Pond, and with two spectacular events to choose from, now's the time to sharpen your skates. First, join in the fun at the "Winter Season Kick-Off Celebration" on Sunday, Nov. 25. The Skating Club of Boston will be there, along with Mix 104.1, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, and others. You can enter a raffle for prizes, sign up for a 15-minute private lesson (limited availability, during the celebration only), receive skating passes from Boston Moves for Health, and more. A few days after the opening, on Thursday, Nov. 29, another event takes over the Pond on Thursday -- the 71st annual "Tree Lighting Pre-Show Skating Spectacular." Talented members of the Skating Club of Boston take to the ice in an amazing show featuring skating champions, synchronized skating, and theatre on ice performances that will get you in the holiday spirit. After the show, hop over to the tree lighting, where you'll find even more fun and activities. Happy skating! Winter Season Kick-Off Celebration, Sun., Nov. 25, 1-3 p.m. Skating Spectacular show, Thurs., Nov. 30, 5 p.m. All ages. Free. The Boston Common Frog Pond, 84 Beacon St., Boston.
