Town of Oyster Bay residents and their families are invited to kick-off the holiday season by attending the third annual free Holiday on Ice Show at the Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center Saturday night from 6-8 p.m.
The center’s skating students will perform choreographed routines to music. Admission is free but residents are encouraged to help others by donating two canned goods, which will be collected at the event by Island Harvest.
Some of the country’s most outstanding skating talent will be performing at the show, adding their own artistic flair to the evening’s festivities. Among those expected to perform will be Senior Ladies National Competitor Joelle Forte, Junior National Pairs Medalists Darbie Burke and Griffin Schwab and Junior National Competitor Emmy Ma.
In addition, the talents of students who participate in the Town’s figure skating program will also be showcased. The event will also feature a friendly match between the Elves vs. the Reindeers, members of the Town’s ‘Tot Hockey’ team.
To help bring overseas troops a feeling of home during this holiday season, the Town is taking part in the American Red Cross ‘Holiday Mail for Heroes’ Program. Holiday greeting cards will be available in the lobby for residents to fill out prior to and during the show, which will then be sent to U.S. service men and women.
A visit from Santa will round out the event, and children will be able to visit with Santa following the show if parents or family members would like to take a photo.
