In return for their service, Destination Rapid City is sending their thanks to our local heroes by giving them free entry to the Main Street Square Ice Rink.
DRC is holding their Second Annual Hero Skate Free Day Friday and Saturday.
Men and woman who serve in the military or fire and police departments can get a free admission for them and their families.
On Saturday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. here will be plenty of activities for everyone.
"JD Productions will be down here," said Executive Director of DRC, Megan Whitman. "He's going to be doing some giveaways with some treats for the kids, a lot of activities on the ice, and you might even see a cupid shuffle."
The next family friendly event will be on Friday, January 17th. Whitman says the theme is "Teen Night," featuring lights and glow sticks on the ice, as well as a dance party.
The ice rink is open Friday and Saturday until 10 p.m.
