Start practicing your triple axels, Skate the Star is coming back to the Mall of America in Bloomington. OK, maybe those moves are a bit extreme, but you can leisurely loop around this outdoor rink for charity!

Skate the Star is brought to us by Medica and TCF Bank this year, and it is totally free to do if you bring your own skates. Skate rental is just $5 and all the money from rentals will be donated to The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities.
