BOSTON, MA - The Boston Red Sox will introduce their first "New Year's Eve at Fenway Park," an ice skating and sledding event for families and children from 5-10 p.m. on December 31. Tickets are on sale now at redsox.com/newyears at $40 per person. The event is part of Citi Frozen Fenway, a 17-day period in which the ice rink will serve as host to a variety of skating and hockey events.
"We have the opportunity this year, with an ice rink on the field, to welcome families from all over New England on New Year's Eve," said Red Sox Executive Vice-President/COO Sam Kennedy. "We are also bringing in a unique 'Monster Sled' in the outfield that will add to the fun of the event."
Fans can select a specified half hour to skate when they purchase their tickets (subject to availability) but are welcome to come to the ballpark at anytime from 5-10 p.m. to enjoy the festivities. Ticketed patrons will have access to the new 'Monster Sled' throughout the night.
The State Street Pavilion Club and EMC Club will provide areas of warmth and comfort, including free hot chocolate for kids. In addition, groups of up to 22 people can make separate arrangements to celebrate, skate, and have dinner in a private suite that looks out over the ballpark. To book a suite, please call 617-226-6888.
The World Series Trophies of 2004, 2007, and 2013 will be on display on the field and available for photographs. Fans are also invited to come down and take pictures on the warning track and in the dugouts.
Traditional ballpark fare will be on sale at concession stands in the temperature-controlled Home Plate Concourse.
The event is the first at Fenway Park in which skating and sledding are open to all of New England.
The Red Sox suggest that fans use public transportation.
