EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

There's something new on Franklin Street in time for the holidays.

A synthetic ice skating rink was set up by the West Side Library. 

Franklin Street Events association are hosting the event every day through December 12.

Skating started at 10 Thursday morning and people have already been testing it out.

The rink came from a company out of Massachusetts. Volunteers lubricate it twice a day to keep it slick.

Ice skating goes on until 10 p.m. It's six dollars an hour. 

You can't bring your own skates because of the material, but there are pairs available to rent at the rink.
