Escapades on Ice [PHOTOS]

Cold weather makes for perfect ice skating conditions.

Local ice skating rinks offered a fun solution to cabin fever and residents traveled to Brewster, Elmsford, White Plains, Suffern and Pelham to lace 'em up and take a spin around the rink.

At Ebersole Ice Rink in White Plains on Sunday, parents held the hands of their children who took to the ice for the first time, holding the wall as they crept along, while more experienced skaters sped past, skating backwards or practicing spins.

Other parents chose to stay warm with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate while sitting near a fireplace, venturing out for a few seconds to wave or take picture of their children as they skated past.

Who says you need cold weather to go ice skating? Many of these rinks are open year round.
