Saturday Night Ice Shows continue this week

LAKE PLACID — The 2018 summer skating series continues, Aug. 10, with Friday’s Freaky Friday and Aug. 11 with the Saturday Night Ice Show at the Olympic Center, in Lake Placid.

Both events will be held in the center’s 1932 Rink Jack Shea Arena.

U.S. men’s singles skater Andrew Torgashev headlines Saturday’s skating show. Torgashev, whose parents skated for the Soviet Union, won the 2015 U.S. junior national championship crown. In July of this year, he claimed the gold medal at the 2018 Philadelphia Summer International.

The Saturday night ice show series is scheduled to wrap up Aug. 18 and feature Ryan Bradley, the 2011 U.S. men’s singles national champion. Bradley also won the 2009 Skate America bronze medal, in Lake Placid.

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 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.
