Lace up the skates! Energy on Ice returns to Owensboro, Kentucky

Downtown Owensboro is decked out in the spirit of Christmas and is the perfect place to hit the rink. So, pack it in, grab a hot cocoa and lace up your skates. It’s time to go ice skating with the kids! The season starts on Friday, November 25th, 2022.

Ice skating was a common pastime for me growing up. We had a large pond in our backyard that was always frozen over during the winter months. I lived in northern Michigan where there were always opportunities to skate. Except for the time my dad cleared the pond for his little girl. It wasn’t frozen enough and his truck drove through the ice and into the water. It put a damper on my birthday party this year! I don’t think I could skate now, but I cherish the memories of my youth.


Ice skating at the Owensboro Convention Center becomes a popular tradition. It’s a great way to celebrate the season and spend time with family and friends. Enjoy views of downtown Owensboro while skating to your heart’s content.

Energy On Ice is sponsored by Southern Star Central Gas Pipeline, Atmos Energy, Boardwalk Pipeline Partners and the Staton Family Foundation. Just in time for the holidays, the 80×60 artificial ice rink will be erected behind the outdoor venue on Kentucky Legend Pier.
