Saturday Night Ice Shows begin July 7

LAKE PLACID – The 2018 summer skating series opens July 6 with Friday’s Freaky Friday and July 7 with the Saturday Night Ice Show at the Olympic Center.

Both events will be held in the Center’s 1932 Rink Jack Shea Arena. The rink, training ground for countless world-class skaters, is testament to Lake Placid’s Olympic heritage.

Ashley Cain and Tim LeDuc are the featured skaters during Saturday’s opening night. The pairs team most recently captured the 2018 Four Continents silver medal and the 2017 U.S. national championship bronze medal.

Headliners for the remainder of the summer include Madison Hubbell and Zach Donohue, the 2018 ISU World Figure Skating Championships silver medalists; Ross Miner, a two-time U.S. national championship silver medalist; Andrew Torgashev, the 2015 U.S. junior national champion; and Ryan Bradley, U.S. men’s champion and world competitor.

This summer is the 86th annual summer skating program. The skaters will perform their individual and group numbers during this entertaining event. Admission to the show is $10 for adults, $8 for juniors and seniors. Admission is included with the purchase of the Olympic Sites Passport and children six and under may enter for free.

The ever-popular Freaky Friday show also features skaters from the summer skating program, who create their own unique routines for this event. The skaters abandon their regular routines in favor of creativity, humor and amusement. The routines are judged on entertainment value. Admission is free.
