Olde Fashioned Christmas, ice rink return to Inn at Rancho Santa Fe


It’s snowing in San Diego! At least it will be on Friday, Dec. 2, when The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe kicks off its 3rd annual “Olde Fashioned Christmas.”

The celebration is open to the public and begins at 5 p.m. with snow blowing and the ice rink ribbon-cutting ceremony. Shortly after, attendees will be able to skate under the stars in the outdoor, synthetic ice-skating rink. Ice-skating sessions are $18 for participants 12 and older and $15 for ages 11 and younger. Ice-skating sessions are three hours and include skate rentals. Groups of 10 or more receive a $2 discount per person.

The event also will include a soup challenge where, from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., attendees can purchase $5 tickets to taste all the soups in the challenge. At 6 p.m., The Inn will light its stately 20-foot Christmas tree. At 6:30 p.m., Santa will arrive and be available for pictures with kids. Attendees will be able to purchase s’mores and hot cocoa.

The ice-skating rink will be open from Dec. 2 to Jan. 8 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday and from 3:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday through Friday. For more information about Olde Fashioned Christmas at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe, please visit
