BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (WEAU) -- A new 2,000 square-foot ice rink will open to the public on Saturday at the Mall of America grounds.

‘Skate the Star’ will be free and open to the public during select Mall hours.

Guests are welcome to use their own skates, or skate rentals will be available for $5 with 100 percent of skate rental proceeds going directly to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities. Funds raised from skate rentals will help the BGCTC provide activities and support to more than 9,000 young people in kindergarten through graduation from high school.

The rink is around the north entrance Star Sculpture at Mall of America and was built using 18,000 gallons of water.

The rink will be open from Dec. 8-Jan. 27.
