Bears, boys and beards hit the holiday ice in Midtown

Bears, otters, boys and their beards pulled on skates and hit the ice in a holiday tradition in Piedmont Park.

The 6th Annual Beards, Bears & Otters on Ice celebrated the season and collected toys and donations for Hope Laugh Play's Little Bricks of Hope. The fun unfolded at the ice skating rink at Park Tavern.

The tradition launched in 2012 and has been a holiday blast every year since.
