Organizers reopen Winterfest after unseasonably warm temperatures melt ice rink

TULSA - After five days without solid ice, Winterfest reopened Thursday.

Organizers posted updates on the website and Facebook , saying the rink will open for its regular hours.

Unseasonably warm temperatures made it impossible for workers to keep the ice from getting slushy.

Organizers credited a change in weather and the hard work of staff to get things ready to reopen.

A holiday market and fireworks after the Tulsa Holiday Parade are planned for Saturday.
