Taylor’s Peace Passage Figure Skating Club put on quite the festive show on Sunday, Dec. 16 as they held their 2012 Christmas Pop Concert at the Taylor District Ice Centre.

More than 30 skaters from the club’s Canskate, Junior, Intermediate and Senior levels performed routines in front of a large, boisterous crowd set to holiday themes and music.

“The holiday showcase is one initiative that the Peace Passage Figure Skating Club is proud of this season,” said Lori Eggimann on Monday.

“Our club is very proud to have second and third generation skaters representing many local area families still skating with our club. We are looking forward to celebrating 20 years of skating in Taylor this coming March.”

The Peace Passage skaters put on over 25 performances on Sunday afternoon, including routines to Carol of the Bells, Frosty the Snowman, Jingle Bell Rock and You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch.

Families and friends packed the stands at the ice centre to watch skaters of all ages perform routines they had been working on this fall.

“Skaters danced to traditional Christmas songs as well as showcasing individual skaters’ solo performances,” Eggimann said.

Admission was by donation and there was a silent auction as well, which Eggimann said was well supported with donations from many businesses in Fort St. John and Taylor.

The Peace Passage Figure Skating Club will have its popular Learn to Skate program beginning again this January and will be busy planning their 20th anniversary gala set for March.
