Johnny Weir Is Named the First Winter Village Skating Ambassador

Time Out New York: On the same day that the United Nations made history by designating Wonder Woman as an Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls, NYC’s Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park has announced a rather bold ambassadorship of their own. Starting on November 1, everyone’s favorite ice skater with attitude, Johnny Weir, will serve as the park’s first-ever Winter Village Ambassador.

The two-time Olympian and reality TV favorite will perform feats on ice throughout the season, serve as a creative consultant for the Christmas Tree lighting ceremony, and welcome guests to the park.

Johnny’s first performance of the 2016 season at Winter Village will be Tuesday, November 1, 5:30 pm ET.
