The Bulletin
About a dozen or so people took to the ice on a sunny Wednesday late December afternoon at Dell’Osso Family Farms.
Tyler, who’s no stranger to the rink – he’s a recreation hockey player out of Pleasanton – was there, teaching his 7-year-old niece Kylie learn how to ice skate.
“It’s kind of hot for this time of the year,” said Tyler, who was visiting family in Tracy. “So the ice is a little wet right now.”
But that’s part of the caveat of outdoor ice skating – the experience is affected by weather conditions.
Temperatures were at a comfortable 55 degrees on this day, attracting folks from all over to the admission-free Holidays on the Farm.
Another Tracy resident, Susan, brought her 14-year-old daughter Katrina and a couple of her friends to the ice rink.
“This is our third straight year coming here,” she said. “My daughter and her friends enjoying (ice skating) – they’re still learning but are getting better.”
Ice skating is open to people of all ages. A waiver is required for all while minors are required to have the consent of a parent or guardian.
