(WXYZ) — It's the most wonderful time of the year and the skating rink at Campus Martius in Detroit is getting ready to officially open to the public for the season on Nov. 19.

The Downtown Detroit Partnership and Visit Detroit announced they will also be hosting a rink preview weekend Nov. 12 - Nov. 14 to give the public a pre-season skating opportunity:

Saturday, Nov. 13 – 10 a.m. to midnight

Sunday, Nov. 14 – noon to 10 p.m.

Planned open skate on Friday night had to be canceled due to heavy rain in Detroit on Thursday.

The rink officially opens on Friday, Nov. 19, following the annual Detroit Tree Lighting.

You can watch WXYZ-TV's Light Up The Season Special that Friday on Channel 7 starting at 7 p.m.
