"Just when you thought the Christmas Capital of Texas couldn’t get any bigger, now visitors will be able to enjoy the largest outdoor ice rink in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex," said PW McCallum, Executive Director of the Grapevine Convention & Visitors Bureau. "We’re thrilled to add this magnificent new attraction, and we look forward to the fun holiday memories visitors will create at the Peace Plaza Ice Rink." 

Tickets for the ice rink will be $20 for an hour of skating and are already on sale.

You can also purchase private skating time for $500 an hour.

The city says the rink will be closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
