Prairie Island Ice Arena- Lighting Upgrade [Video]

Published December 2022

“We’ve had comments from our community members, some that didn’t know that this lighting project was going on and some that did. They can already tell the difference, not only in the stands but in the concessions area and on the ice as well. We are grateful that this project was able to come through to fruition.”
