The holidays are fast approaching and Midland residents might not have to go to New York to enjoy an outdoor ice skating rink.

According to the Midland Reporter-Telegram, the Very Merry Midland celebration is scheduled for a second year in downtown Midland and this year it could include an outdoor skating rink.

The celebration is scheduled for December 2-23 and the temporary ice rink is planned for the plaza at the Bank of America tower on the corner of Big Spring and Wall Streets.

There will be a public hearing and vote to approve the request for the temporary ice rink at tomorrow's city council meeting.
