VAIL ” The Vail Recreation District (VRD) will present an ice skating show on Friday at Dobson Ice Arena from 6-7 p.m. “Skate Across America” will include local skating students along with nationally ranked amateurs.

“We had such a good time with last year’s show that the ShowTime Skating program was brought back again this summer,” said Dobson Manager Jared Biniecki. “The focus of the class is performing as opposed to competition, and this show is the culmination of the June skating classes. It’s going to be great fun for families in town for the holiday.”

Ticket prices are $5 for children under 12, $7 for adults and $20 for a family of four. The show will feature both popular and traditional music, while costumes and set designs will feature a journey across America.

“The kids just love doing shows, it was a big hit last year, and this year’s show will be even better,” said Show Director Dawn Ristow. “The Skating Club of Vail is going to do a couple of numbers again, and we have also invited a couple of very talented guest skaters to come up and perform. This will be a great way to beat the heat, and it’s great family entertainment for both locals and guests.”
