    Ditch the cleats and grab your skates. For the second consecutive year, an ice skating rink is open at the Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field.

    The full skating rink is in the Cub's parking lot at the corner of Clark and Waveland.

    A grand opening celebration with Cubs owner Tom Ricketts, Ald. Tom Tunney (44th) and pitcher Tom Gorzelanny will take place Saturday at 1 p.m. Guests will be treated to an open skate for an hour after the event and will be offered free coffee and hot chocolate, the Cubs said.

    Skating at Wrigley became popular after the Chicago Blackhawks played the Detroit Red Wings in 2009, wearing vintage 1954-55 jerseys.

    It costs $10 for adults and $6 for kids on the weekends and is half-price Monday through Thursday.

    "The Rink at Wrigley" is open through February.
