In honor of the rink’s opening and to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Chanel No. 5, Chanel will host a special, week-long brand activation across the Channel Gardens, The Rink, and Center Plaza. Visitors will find a lounge for skaters to enjoy complimentary cocoa, a Chanel No. 5 logo in the ice, two kiosks on Center Plaza where guests can take part in games such as scratch cards to win a bottle of perfume or a free skate session, a Chanel No. 5 light installation throughout the entire length of the Channel Gardens, and more.
