ERIE, Pa. -- JMC Ice Arena opened to the public Friday night for the first time of the 2016-2017 season.
Teenagers skated to music and a lights show.
The arena was forced to remain closed due to a leak in the system responsible for forming ice.
Staff and skaters were looking forward to the opening.
"It's great. We really appreciate everyone coming out tonight and supporting us. It's been a long process, but we're just happy that it's open,” said Amie Fritz, an arena supervisor.
The arena will host events for youth every Friday and Saturday night. For more information, click here.
