Winter Village Returns to Hillsboro --- THIS Friday, November 29 (Photo) - 11/27/19

The area’s only open-air ice skating rink reopens in Hillsboro this Friday, November 29, when Winter Village’s 3,000-square-foot skating rink welcome skaters, starting at 10 am, at Jerry Willey Plaza at Orenco Station (943 NE Orenco Station Loop, next to the Orenco MAX Station in Hillsboro). Opening day's last skate will begin at 8 pm, and Winter Village continues through January 5, 2020.

“Create a new holiday tradition this year,” said City of Hillsboro employee Stacy Ahlberg, Winter Village’s lead organizer. “Grab a bite to eat, do a little shopping, lace up the ice skates for a skate session, then enjoy a hot beverage afterward.”

Several years ago, Hillsboro residents asked City leaders for more family-friendly activities during winter break. Now, in its fifth year, Winter Village continues to grow as an annual community celebration.

New This Year: Winter Market, an outdoor holiday shopping experience, will be part of Winter Village on Sundays  (December 1, 8, 15, and 22) from 10 am to 3 pm, brought to you by the Hillsboro Farmers' Markets and the City of Hillsboro. Thank you to our 2019 Winter Village sponsors (US Bank, Residence Inn by Marriott, Redfin, The Dentists at Orenco Station, and iHeartRadio for your partnership and support.
