Who would have thought it would be TOO COLD to ice skate?

There's a bit of an incentive during the Winter Olympics: free skate rentals for the kids!

Starting this Friday, the world celebrates some of the best athletes on the planet.

And Grand Rapids will celebrate some of the smallest future athletes with free ice skate rentals during the Sochi Winter Olympics!

Eligible kids have to be 17 years old or younger, with free skate rentals Friday through Feb. 23 at Rosa Parks Circle.
