The show was initially scheduled for Abe Stark Rink in Brooklyn. But, due to damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, the facility was unable to play host to the show. Nassau County, behind the leadership of County Executive Ed Mangano and Parks Commissioner Carnell Foskey stepped-up to provide the show promoters with a facility to ensure that the show will go on.

“We thank County Executive Mangano and Commissioner Foskey for helping bring this show to the people of Nassau County,” said Tara King, president of Fireworks Sports Marketing and the Executive Producer of Holiday Dreams on Ice
. “Olympic dreams start every day at ice rinks around the world. Thanks to them, maybe our next Olympian will make their debut performance at Holiday Dreams on Ice.”
