BIG Spring Ice Show: ‘Skating under the BIG Top’
The Bloomington Ice Garden Spring Ice Show is coming to town and promises to be the greatest youth ice show on Earth. “Skating under the BIG Top” features 66 skaters from the skate school and the figure skating club, ages 3 – 18, all eager to share their talents. The Bloomington Butterflies and the Northernettes synchronized skaters add to the performance, now in its 49th year.
See a circus on ice complete with ringmasters, lions, snake charmers, candy sellers, fire eater, trapeze artist, contortionist and other sideshow acts. BIG performers enjoy the chance to show family and friends their improved skating skills in a different environment than competitions.
“The kids always want to do another week’s worth of shows afterwards,” Skate School Coordinator Rene Gelecinskyj said.
Join in the fun on Friday, March 15, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, March 16, at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Tickets are available at BIG, 3600 West 98th Street, starting March 9. The cost is $7 for adults, and $5 for children and seniors. After March 13, tickets cost $8 for adults, and $7 for children and seniors. Tickets will also be available at the door.
