Annual Figure Skating Event In Springfield This Weekend
You don't need to leave the Springfield area for a great ice show this weekend. The Springfield Figure Skating Club puts on the annual Spotlight On Ice performance at the Nelson Center. This year's program is titled "Give Our Regards To Broadway" with music from Broadway shows. Kids and adults will perform.
"You usually have to go to bigger, metropolitan type areas to see ice shows," Club board member Monica Polistina said. "So we're really excited that this is a hidden jewel in the capitol city to have Spotlight on Ice."
When you watch the young skaters, you never know who you'll be seeing. Olympic Medalist Gracie Gold skated in the show when she was living in the area.
There are three performances: Saturday at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.
Tickets are available.
