    It depends what you plan to do with the images. If you plan to use them commercially (in an ad campaign etc.), then you will most likely need a release from anyone recognizable in the image.

    If you plan to use them in a 'fair use' capacity, journalism etc., then you probably don't need a release.

    Is the skating rink public or private property? Who owns it?

    I'm not sure of the answers...but these are some of the questions that you should ask.

    Its a public rink, and a public charity event. All that I would be usiing it for is under the events section of my website.

    A public rink like it's owned by the city or something?
