Titletown today hosted the grand opening of its ice skating rink, 46 Below bistro and Rockwood Terrace event space, kicking off the inaugural Winter Jubilee at Titletown.
The holiday-themed Winter Jubilee Light Show, visits from Santa and ice sculptures were all part of the celebration.
The Winter Jubilee Light Show at Titletown will take place most Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening from Nov. 30 until Dec. 30. A dazzling blend of holiday-themed lights, music and special effects, this family-friendly presentation also features animation, lasers and fireworks.
The Winter Jubilee Light Show and affiliated holiday events also will continue throughout the month of December, with full dates and information listed at titletown.com. All Winter Jubilee events are open to the public, with all activities free unless otherwise noted.
Ice skating rink hours, admission and skate rental information also can be found at titletown.com.
46 Below, which accommodates 80 guests, is a bistro that serves quick bites, comfort food and drinks for park visitors, and the name is an homage to the Ice Bowl, the legendary 1967 NFL Championship game at Lambeau Field during which the wind chill temperature famously plummeted to 46 below zero. The name also accurately describes the space, which is on the ground floor, 46 feet below the top of the tubing hill.

Rockwood Terrace, the event space on the level above 46 Below, can accommodate 200 guests for a wide variety of private events. It is named in honor of the Packers' former training facility, Rockwood Lodge, located 18 miles northeast of Green Bay, which was utilized by the Packers for training camps from 1946 through 1949.
Titletown also will soon open Ariens Hill, which will feature tubing in the colder months, and in the warmer months, the hill's sloped green space will provide a unique area for visitors and community members to relax and enjoy park activities and programs. Three snow-making machines and grooming equipment will ensure optimal tubing conditions in the winter.
An opening date for tubing on Ariens Hill will be determined in the coming weeks, and will take place as soon as weather conditions are favorable for making snow.
Tube riders will descend from the top of Ariens Hill – at a height of 46 feet – down one of three tubing lanes, stretching 300 feet from start to finish. While tubes are being returned to the top of Ariens Hill via an automated system, tube riders can climb the stairs to the summit to begin another thrilling ride.
Riders must purchase a tubing ticket to use Ariens Hill when it is snow-covered and open for tubing. Full tubing rules, hours and admission prices, as well as more information about Titletown, is available at titletown.com.
