Before the McDonalds Ice Rink opened for business on the weekend in Russell Street local politicians, media and other identities had a chance to hit the ice and test it for themselves.

Representatives from 2BS, Bathurst City Life, McDonalds joined Paul Toole and Greens candidate Delanie Sky for the hour long session.

Thanks Bathurst Council for the chance to strap on the skates and get a ride on the Ferris Wheel.
