City to give away tickets to skate at Fenway Park

Boston will distribute tickets for free public skating at Fenway on two days next month at community centers across the city this Saturday between 9 and 11 a.m. (except in Chinatown, where the hours will be 12-2).

Boston residents (and, yes, proof of residency will be required) can get up to four tickets per family for either Jan. 3 or Jan. 10, according to the mayor's office. Roughly 3,000 tickets will be distributed. The rink, now set up to let the Bruins and the Flyers play on New Year's Day, will be open to ticket holders during the afternoon and evening, thanks to sponsorship from SunLife.

    I understand the city limiting the public access to Boston residents only but.....sure are going to be some disappointed young hockey fans and players out there! I know one avid Bruin fan, club hockey player from eastern CT watching the rink get built online at Boston.com etc..whom was sure looking forward to an opportunity to skate at Fenway!

    According to the Mayor's

    By on

    According to the Mayor's Office, there are 3000 skate tickets equally distributed amongst the 16 Centers listed. Each Boston resident can get up to 4 tickets for themselves and their family. So, there are approximately 187/188 tickets per Center (3000/16) of which the first approximately 47/48 persons can get the entire allocation if they each take 4 tickets.

    Something to think about if you are considering waiting out in the cold for these. Good luck!

    Charlestown had 200 tix.

    Charlestown had 200 tix. People started sleeping out at 4am. If you weren't one of the first 50 in line, you were out of luck. Sadly, my family was out of luck!

    I just hope people don't start selling these for huge money.

    Line @ Jackson-Mann

    I passed the Jackson-Mann school on the bus at about 7:40 this morning, on my way in to work - there was a line from the front door all the way down the steps to the sidewalk and a police car with lights flashing at the curbside.
