“We have had the pleasure of hosting many of these talented figure skaters in a number of shows at Patriot Place over the years and look forward to their return to the Winter Skate ice on Dec. 13, ” said Patriot Place General Manager Brian Earley. “The holidays are a great time to spend with loved ones and give to those less fortunate. Our Holiday on Ice show perfectly captures that spirit by giving families a wonderful event to attend together while giving back to those in need through donations collected for Cradles to Crayons.”
Henry Son, the national announcer for U.S. Figure Skating, will announce the Holiday on Ice show, which will be directed by Ashley Brouillette with music by Creative Music Productions. The event, sponsored by the Pawtucket and Providence Figure Skating Club, is sanctioned by U.S. Figure Skating.
