Sugar Land Town Square gears up for the holidays with outdoor ice skating, shopping pop-ups, and family fun
Fall and winter in Houston and surrounding areas means chilly outdoor activities, and few are more beloved than ice skating. Destinations like The Galleria and Discovery Green are packed this time of years with skaters of every skill level.
Now, a booming 'burb is getting into the on-ice fun. Sugar Land Town Square will debut Skate the Square, which sees the bustling Square transformed into a winter wonderland ice skating rink, on Saturday, December 3.
A large section of the massive town square overlooking city hall and the Town Center restaurants and retail will house the skating rink, where visitors can hop on from 11 am to 4 pm. Aside from outdoor skating, those attending can enjoy bites and beverages from favorite Town Square restaurants, plus, a visit from The Grinch to spread a little (grouchy) fun.
Also on December 3, shoppers can grab presents for at the Boho Holiday Market from 11 am to 4 pm. All events are pet-friendly.
More holiday entertainment comes via a special dance performance, an appearance from Cindy Lou Who, plus a visit from Mrs. Claus, who will gladly pass along Christmas wish lists to the Big Guy in red.

Doors open at 1 pm; the last photo will be taken at 5 pm. (Fans are advised to lock in their spots in line before 5 pm). Santa will snap photos and field gift requests through Sunday, December 18.
