According to Randy Morris Assistant City Manager for the city of Dothan, “We wanted to have something that is different that the community has not had before, something fun and it’ll be during the Christmas season it’ll be downtown so hopefully it will bring more people to downtown and get to experience some of our local shops and restaurants down there.”>

There will be an admission to skate. The city plans to keep the rink up through January 9th.
