On Thursday, December 2, 2010 ice skaters of all ages will glide across the Safeway Holiday Ice Rink in Union Square arm-in-arm with their favorite San Francisco Bay Area drag personalities at “Drag Queens on Ice.”
“We wanted to create a theme night that captures the fun, free spirit of the City,” says Safeway Holiday Ice Rink Manager Brian Klavano. “What could be more good-spirited and ‘San Francisco’ than a legion of drag queens ice skating and laughing with moms, dads and children? It’s going to be fabulous.”
Ticket prices for children eight years old and under are $4.50 Monday through Friday until 6 p.m. and $5 from 6 p.m. Friday through the closing session on Sunday.
