It's almost time to lace up your skates in Downtown Wausau.

Crews began working on the 400 Block's ice rink Friday.

After weeks of above-average temperatures, it was finally cold enough to start the project.

Locals said they're excited to hit the ice and spend time skating with their families.

The rink is expected to open Dec. 17.
