Last year was the first year that the Mall of America had their outdoor ice rink that they called 'Skate the Star.' It went super well last year so they're bringing it back and it's opening for the season soon!

Skating is free, which is a major plus! If you need skates you can rent them for $5. The Mall of America website says that to rent skates they also require a driver's license, state ID card or $20 deposit to rent skates. All proceeds go to the Boys and Girls Club of the Twin Cities.

KARE 11 reports that last year 'Skate the Star' raised $86,000 for the Boys and Girls Club! Hopefully, they're able to raise even more this year, that would be incredible.

So when will 'Skate the Star' open for this winter? December 14th! The rink will be open until February 2nd. The rink is located at the north entrance around the MOA star, hence the name of the rink.
