You can skate with Mayor Tomlinson

How often can you go to the Columbus Ice Rink, 400 Fourth St., and find your city's mayor there?

Saturday, between 4-6 p.m., you can skate with Columbus Mayor Teresa Tomlinson and some other city officials.

Mayor Tomlinson is the host of "Public Skate with the Mayor."

It's free and open to anyone. Skate rental is free as well.

Now, we don't know if the mayor will answer any of your questions, but I've seen her at other public events, and she's pretty friendly. If you do have questions, it wouldn't hurt to ask. But do it nicely.

Will I be there? Probably not. I've tried ice skating once, many, many years ago when I was much, much younger.

I spent most of the time on the ice. I mean on the ice. My jeans were soaked by the time I left. I truly didn't think the ice would be that wet.

At 6:01 p.m., you'll have to pay for admission, which is $5-$7 and pay for skate rentals, which is $3.

The ice rink will be open until 9 p.m.

Summer hours are 4-9 p.m. Sunday; 10 a.m.-noon and 5-7 p.m. Monday-Tuesday, 10 a.m.-noon and 5-7 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m.-noon and 4-9 p.m. Friday; 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and 4-9 p.m. Saturday.

Call 706-225-4500.
