Ice Skate Tour is bringing its ice rink to Palmerston North for four days!

Since 2014 Ice Skate Tour has travelled around with state of the art, artificial ice rinks. The mobile rinks look like natural ice, have 97% the same gliding capacity as natural ice, and are 100% green – which has zero impact on the environment.
