Sanford gets new ice rink
SANFORD (WGME) -- There's an ice rink coming to Sanford, to celebrate the city's 250th anniversary, but officials have much bigger plans for it in the future.
The rink will be set up across from city hall, at Central Park downtown.
Organizers call it a "starter rink."
They say after winter, they plan move it to a permanent location.
The president of the Chamber of Commerce says he hopes to eventually light it from underneath, add weekend vendors for snacks like hot chocolate, and build a warming hut and a roof.
The rink is refrigerated.
The rink will be dedicated during a ribbon cutting on January 26, but will be ready for skaters sometime next week.
