There's no one particular aspect of any of the above events that set it apart from the other events. Size was not a factor, duration didn't matter, and even crowd size doesn't guarantee inclusion. It is however when any of these factors stand out. Often it's challenges overcome that made the event a standout, unique location can be a qualifier (like a southern CA beach), as well as when the event is a showcase or part of another greater cause or event such as in the case of Lollapalooza (of course who couldn't say that a throwback roller disco at a major music festival wouldn't' be awesome...). At times its the relationship with our client that makes the event standout. When you've worked with an organization for years the event just flows and the overall experience is extra special. Of course a good crowd or audience reaction is a great way to make it onto the list, and such is the case when our proskater performer ice shows & other entertainment. Finally, sometimes it's the community that makes an event memorable. In any case it's a pleasure to be a part of all of our events we love working with our clients to create standout popuprink events that hopefully make it onto our Top 10 lists.
In late November Chill opened The Rink at MGM Springfield MA with a launch event featuring special guest, US National Champion, World & Olympic medalist, Nancy Kerrigan, an event which helped kick things off with large crowds each weekend throughout December. Every week, we also hosted a Local Skater Showcase featuring performances by area amateur figure skaters. The opportunity was an excellent experience for these young skaters who braved the cold air and outdoor conditions to perform for guests, onlookers and passerby. The skaters enjoyed the experience to feel like a star for a day and each met the challenge like a pro. The Rink is always available for Private Rentals, and it seems no holiday season is complete without a proposal. Indeed MGM Springfield‘s historic location, and our beautiful rink design made for the perfect proposal setting for one happy couple who rented the rink for this special occasion. Thankfully we got to add another post to our #shesaidyes. After the New Year the temperature dropped and so we hope to turn it up with the addition of professional Skating Entertainment, starring an ensemble cast of four pro skaters. Together they perform twice a day, three nights a week. Chill After Dark is a 10-15 min segment based on the laws of attraction, just in time for the Valentine seaon. The Entertainment is offered in conjunction with our Fantasy Skate Camps, and private VIP lessons, and will continue through February and into March.
