Olympic gold medal-winning figure skater Brian Boitano and the comic-strip dog Snoopy performed, among others. The White House says the rink will operate during December. Washington, D.C.-area schoolchildren and children from families with service members, frontline workers, first responders and educators will be invited to skate. The National Hockey League and its players union will provide hockey lessons.
