CHELSEA — Call it Christmas on the High Line.

A new ice rink constructed inside a makeshift "snow globe" next to the elevated park drew figure skater Johnny Weir and "30 Rock" stars Tracy Morgan and Jane Krakowski for the launch of Jaguar's new XJ 3.0 sedan on Thursday.

The car maker's "Chill NY" event saw the two-time Olympian take to the ice before the rink opened to the public. It will remain open through Saturday at 5 p.m., with Weir returning for another performance on Friday from 2 to 4 p.m.

Former New York Rangers Chris and Peter Ferraro will also be at the rink for hockey tutorials on Saturday from noon to 2 p.m.
