REVELLERS at Scotland's largest multi-cultural festival can keep cool this year – at the ice rink.
Organisers of this year's Mela, in Glasgow's Kelvingrove Park in June, have promised party-goers a 10m by 10m synthetic ice rink which will be free.
Open from noon until 6pm during the event on June 23 and 24, the rink will host half-hour skating sessions for up to 35 skaters at any one time. Bosses promise it will be the perfect way to cool down in the summer sun.
Jill Miller, director of culture at Glasgow Life, said: "Glasgow on Ice in George Square saw more than 50,000 people take to the ice this winter.
"But skating in the sunshine, now that definitely has appeal."
The rink takes only four hours to build and two hours to take down after the event.
The Mela will see Kelvingrove Park host some of the biggest names in urban, bhangra and Bollywood music over three stages.
Headline acts, and the full range of other attractions and activities being staged at the carnival, will be announced soon at www.glasgowmela.com
