Fenway Park hosts holiday skating

Mayor Thomas Menino is hosting a free New Year’s Day skate at a city landmark more associated with green grass and summer breezes. Today from 9:45 to 11 a.m., residents will get to take a spin on an ice rink built at Fenway Park. The event kicks off “Frozen Fenway’’ celebrations, which run until Jan. 16 and feature several hockey games between local high school and college teams, including Northeastern University and Boston College.
