About the Rink
As presenting sponsor of the Holiday Lights Festival, ConAgra Foods will construct a temporary ice skating rink on its campus. The ice skating rink is artificially chilled in order to keep it frozen even on the most pleasant of winter days.
The community is invited to enjoy a special Skating Extravaganza at the ice rink featuring skaters from the Blade and Edge Figure Skating Club on Saturday, December 19, and Sunday, December 20 at 3 p.m. Both 30-minute performances are free of charge, with a requested admission of a nonperishable food item donation to the “Shine the Light on Hunger” campaign. Public skating will be temporarily closed during this performance.

Shine the Light on Hunger
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the rink are donated to the Food Bank for the Heartland as part of the “Shine the Light on Hunger” campaign, a significant component of the Holiday Lights Festival. The ConAgra Foods Foundation will match ice rink donations dollar-for-dollar up to $100,000. For every $1 donated, the Food Bank for the Heartland can distribute three meals to those in need.
Look for Shine the Light collection bins at the ice rink. Your nonperishable food item donations will be distributed to families in need by Food Bank for the Heartland.
