TICKETS to ice skate during next month’s Bathurst Winter Festival are proving to be the hottest item in town.
This year’s festival runs from July 7-22 with the hugely-popular ice rink to return along with a new attraction – a 350 square metre mirror maze.
Ice skating tickets went on sale on June 4 and already 776 have been sold, along with 169 skating aids.
Coco’s Events from Wollongong will be serving up coffee and food alongside the ice rink during the two weeks of the festival.
A council spokeswoman said that while an expression of interest was issued to run the cafe earlier this year, no local vendors applied.
The festival street parties will make a return on July 7 and 14 in and around Kings Parade, and they will feature a range of local produce, entertainment, music and illuminations.
