For the first time ever, celebrate a white Christmas at Dodger Stadium with an illuminated, open-air ice skating experience constructed across the outfield. The 80’ x 60’ ice rink will run 30-minute sessions throughout each event date. Additionally, Santa Claus will be landing his sleigh in the bullpen of the third-oldest ballpark in the Major Leagues this winter! Make reservations for one-hour time slots for professional photos with Santa and the kids. Guests will be able to access their pictures digitally with an option to add printed photos or keepsakes.
