It’s a sure sign that winter is arriving when ice skating arrives at the Frog Pond on Boston Common. Since 1997, skating on the Frog Pond has been one of the signature attractions to Boston Common. And luckily for everyone involved, Mother Nature kept the temperatures frigid for the rink’s opening celebration last night.
