Augusta sadly has been lacking an ice skating rink for the past few years. But that’s about to change, starting this week! Augusta on Ice will be at the Augusta Common for 50 days, bringing with it an all-inclusive winter wonderland. The best part is, you’ll be able to skate on 100 percent, absolutely real ice! Anyone who knows the climate in Augusta probably has their doubts, but it is possible. The mind behind Augusta on Ice, Chris Boerner, explained:“It is real ice,” she said.
