Experience All the Year's Seasons at Parks' Annual Ice Show Gorksi: Garden Club's House, Garden Walk Tickets to Go on Sale
Byline: Reggie Gorski
Newly named Rolling Meadows Park District skating director Leanne Walsh is busily preparing for the 35th annual Ice Show, titled "Seasons," which runs today through Sunday at the West Meadows Ice Arena, 3939 Winnetka Ave.
Approximately 400 children and adults enrolled in the park district's myriad skating programs will entertain audiences at 7 p.m. performances today and Saturday as well as matinee shows at 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Several graduating seniors, veterans of the programs, are slated for solo performances.
You'll also be able to enjoy the talents of the Chicago Jazz competitive groups, including the newly crowned national champion novice and juvenile teams, fresh from their winning performances this past February in Boston, Mass.
"Seasons" will take you through the calendar year with themed skating numbers starting with a New Year's celebration.
This annual extravaganza was traditionally a sellout when held at the Sports Complex Ice Arena on Owl Drive. The move to West Meadows in 1997 allowed for more ample seating to accommodate the program's popularity.
Tickets will be available at the door for all performances at $7 per person, with open seating. Children age 2 and under will be admitted at no charge.
Seniors celebrate at Randhurst: Randhurst Shopping Center at Elmhurst and Rand roads in Mount Prospect is once again the site of this year's Senior Celebration Day, a day of health screenings, entertainment and activities for older adults scheduled for May 11.
The event is sponsored by District 214 Community Education in collaboration with many local agencies that serve the needs of senior citizens in the Northwest suburbs.
Arrive early for complimentary coffee and muffins at 9:30 a. …
