Every year, the talented members of the Black River Falls Figure Skating Club put on an outstanding ice show for the Black River community. This year’s beach-themed performance will be held at the Milt Lunda Memorial Area Friday, March 22 at 7pm, Saturday, March 23 at 11am and 7pm and Sunday, March 24 at 2pm.
Tickets are $6 for anyone age 13 and up, $3 for kids ages 4-12, and free for those 3 and under.
While the annual ice show is the figure skating club’s signature event, it’s just a small part of who they are. Founded nearly 30 years ago, the Black River Falls Figure Skating Club is a non-profit organization whose goal is to promote a positive atmosphere where skaters can improve their skills, grow and develop camaraderie. Professional skaters and coaches provide top-notch instruction on a group or individual basis. More advanced skaters can choose to join one of the club’s synchronized skating teams and participate in competitions throughout the year.
