The Holidays Are On Ice, Even The Warm Ones

Saturday Dec. 8


Hey, baby, it's cold outside, so why not come inside and sit beside a giant ice rink for a couple hours? Sure, some kindling in the fireplace, a warm blanket and a cup of hot chocolate would be a welcome reprieve from the biting winds, but you're already bundled, and nothing keeps the blood circulating--and the winter malaise away--like a few turns around the rink. So if your kiddos have always dreamed of becoming Olympic-level ice skaters (or maybe you just know all the lines from Blades of Glory), then head over to Idaho IceWorld for some holiday cheer.

On Saturday, Dec. 8, Idaho IceWorld will hold performances of Holidays on Ice. And by "holiday," the event organizers don't just mean Christmas. The performance celebrates everything from Valentine's and St. Patrick's days to Thanksgiving and New Year's. With colorful costumes and festive music, we can't promise that this won't send you into some kind of holiday meltdown, but what's life without a little risk?

The program includes skaters from Boise Figure Skating Club as well as the Learn to Skate programs through Idaho IceWorld. So if you're looking for some family friendly entertainment to kick off the (entire) holiday season, load up the crew and hit the rink. You bring the gloves; they'll provide the entertainment.
