The Peninsula Figure Skating Club is gearing up to host a holiday exhibition.

Featuring skaters ranging in age and ability, the exhibition will take place Dec. 16 from 1 to 3 p.m. in Arena B at Panorama Recreation Centre.

“We have some of the younger skaters who have been practicing some holiday-themed routines and our junior, intermediate and senior skaters will be performing their solo routines as well,” explained PFSC member, Deanna Hamilton.

“We really encourage people to come out and see what the club is all about and what our skaters have been working on so far this season,” added PFSC Head Coach Lorraine Hyne.

Advance ticket sales are available at Panorama in Arena A on Thursdays from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
