Looking for a way to chill down? Enjoy the cool comfort of Bloomington Ice Garden (BIG) while you watch ice skaters performing their best moves. BIG will serve as the venue for the Minnesota State Figure Skating Championships, Thursday, August 19 – Saturday, August 21.
“State, as those in the figure skating world refer to it, is the most important nonqualifying competition in Minnesota,” Bloomington Ice Garden Skate School Coordinator Rene Gelecinskyj said. “Top skaters from all over the state participate and use this event as a warm up for the first qualifying competition of the year, which leads to the National Championships.”
The Twin City Figure Skating Association has hosted the event for more than 40 years. The central location of Bloomington Ice Garden, 3600 West 98th Street, along with its three ice surfaces and proximity to Mall of America make it an ideal venue for the competition.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit blm.mn/BIG or call 952-563-8877.
