The Mall of America is opening a public skating rink this weekend, here is what you need to know if you want to get your skate on at the MOA.

"Skate the Star" gives the opportunity for the public to skate outdoors around the ice sculpture they have that is in the shape of the MOA star logo.

The rink is located at the north entrance to the mall, near Ikea, and it opens this Saturday, December 8th and continues through January, 27th.

The rink is free and you can either bring your own skates, or skate rentals are available for $5 with proceeds benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs.

All skaters must fill out waivers before skating and all minors under 18 must have the waiver signed by a parent or guardian. You can get a copy of the waiver here.
