Any plans for the upcoming weekend or next week? NO!!!! Then have I got the perfect itenariry for the figure skating enthusiast. RICH YOUR NEWS AND SPORTSCASTER here at the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort in beautiful downtown Lake Placid relaxing on our white sandy beach and awaiting the upcoming skating spectacular. This coming Saturday August 29th at 7:30pm is the final CITIZENS BANK SATURDAY NIGHT ICE SHOW FINALS. All the winners from the previous Ice Skating shows will be competing for the championship title. There will be plenty of cheers and pristine figure skating (hopefully not to many falls on the ice…not like this poor bird who always falls on the ice…hehe) at the OLYMPIC CENTER ICE SKATING ARENA!! These champions will also be joined by guest skaters participating in the 77th Annual Miracles of Gold skating program. Sure to be fun for everyone.
If this was enough skating for one individual there is even more the following week. Lake Placid is holding for the 2nd time the ISU JUNIOR GRAN PRIX CHAMPIONSHIPS.
