Hundreds of white plastic pieces — 440 to be exact — will soon snap together like a jigsaw puzzle. Late this month, the resulting 44-foot-by-76-foot synthetic skating rink surface will make its debut during Gladstone’s annual Mayor’s Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony.

“We think it’s going to have the appeal of Crown Center,” Gladstone Parks Director Sheila Lillis said of plans to decorate the trees surrounding the rink with white lights for the Tuesday, Nov. 20, holiday event. “It’s going to have this peppermint candy-like look.”
