The Safeway Holiday Ice Rink in Union Square presented by Alaska Airlines is never more fabulous than during one of the City’s most popular events of the holiday season—Drag Queens on Ice.
Now in its eighth year, Drag Queens On Ice will feature San Francisco’s fiercest drag queens, including Mutha Chucka, Paju Munro, Kylie-Pop, Sugah Betes, BeBe Sweetbriar, and Mahlae Balenciaga, as they don their most gay apparel for an evening of special performances. Legendary San Francisco drag personality Donna Sachet will return to serve as Mistress of Ceremonies. Special guests for this year’s event includes the return Sister Roma of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and Queen Dilly Dally, the queen of make believe. To celebrate this annual event and the tenth anniversary of the Holiday Ice Rink at Union Square, Humphry Slocombe will serve its commemorative limited-edition flavor, “Chocolate Peppermint Death Drop,” an homage to the daring move known by both ice skaters and drag queens alike.
The event is open to all ages and free to watch. Tickets to skate alongside the queens and have the best seat in the house for the performances are $25 for adults and $20 for children. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online at unionsquareicerink.com or in person at the ice rink ticket window in Union Square Park (333 Post Street in San Francisco).
“As Mistress of Ceremonies, you can think of me as your own, personal Queen Elsa, but with bigger hair, a smaller waist, and a fiercer lip-sync!” says Donna Sachet. “This year’s Drag Queens on Ice is sure to be more outrageous than ever.”
