Starting in 2008, the Skate into New Year party has donated several thousand dollars to the Lake Placid Food Pantry to help replenish the reduced pantry after the Holiday season. 100% of the proceeds benefit the food pantry. This family friendly skating party takes place on New Year's Eve from 10:30 pm until 12:30 am on the Olympic Speed Skating Oval. Hot beverages and snacks are graciously donated for the enjoyment of our skaters. Bring your friends and family and skate into the New Year with us!
