With only about a dozen ice rinks in California, we are excited that the friendly city of Fortuna in Humboldt County is building one!   We are even more excited that they plan on being film friendly! We can't wait to get our hands on some completed pictures for you!  Meanwhile, here is the scoop on the new redwood region location...
