The Wayzata Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a two day event titled Cinema & Skates on Friday, February 19 & Saturday February 20th on Wayzata Bay / Lake Minnetonka.

Billed as a great opportunity and excuse to get out of the house, organizers invite the public to a unique and charming experience over Valentine's Day weekend.

The event is a bit of a change for the Chamber, as the non-profit recently announced the cancellation of the annual Chilly Open event due to logistical concerns. Wayzata Chamber President Becky Pierson stated, "We were bummed to make the call on the golfing portion of the event, but we were determined and inspired to pivot like so many other businesses and organizations."

Pierson also continued, "We're excited about how we've been able to enhance Cinema & Skates. We are also appreciative of the partnerships and businesses that are helping to make our dream a reality."

Participants can enjoy a number of attractions and events including:

  • An infinity ice skating loop inspired by Two Harbors based Superior Shores Resort
  • An appearance by Olaf on Friday from 4:30 - 6:30pm
  • Friday fireworks at 7:00pm
  • Saturday evening skate with Rob McClanahan, member of the Miracle on Ice 1980 Olympic gold medal team

  • Friday, February 12 | 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm featuring FROZEN 2
