Skaters flocked to downtown Burbank this week for the grand opening of a temporary ice rink, which is slated to be open through early January.
“This is like Rockefeller Center now,” said Burbank resident Masiss Andriasian, just after he picked up a flier with details on the rink’s hours Friday afternoon.
Andriasian planned to take his two sons and daughter skating Friday evening.
“This is real — you can’t play this with a remote control,” Andriasian said.
For 10-year-old Kyron Mirzakhanian, who often skates at Pickwick Ice in Burbank, the rink was a neat opportunity to skate outdoors. His mom called him as soon as she drove past the rink on Thursday to let him know about Burbank’s latest attraction.
“I’m like, there’s a rink? Take me, take me, take me,” the 10-year-old said, taking a break from doing tricks on the ice. He said he hopes officials bring the rink back next year.
