Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and the Town Board are pleased to announce the Annual ‘Holiday on Ice’ Show will take place at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 21st at the Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center located in Bethpage Community Park, 1001 Stewart Avenue. Admission to the show is free. Students from the Town’s Ice Skating Program will perform an enchanting, holiday-themed skating exhibition and the evening includes an exhibition hockey game between the Elves and the Reindeer, which are two teams comprised of players from the Town of Oyster Bay Youth Ice Hockey program. Santa Claus is scheduled to visit with children and take photographs after the show.
“This special holiday performance is an annual tradition for many families and children across the Town,” said Supervisor Saladino. “The show provides an opportunity for participants in the Town’s ice skating program to showcase the hard work they’ve put into training all year. Join us on December 21st, as the performance is sure to dazzle all those in attendance!” In the spirit of “the season of giving,” attendees are asked to bring two non-perishable food items for donation to Island Harvest, an organization committed to ending hunger on Long Island. Attendees are also welcome to bring a new, unwrapped toy for donation to the United States Marines ‘Toys for Tots’ Collection Drive which benefits local children throughout the community. ‘Holiday on Ice’ performance attendees will also be offered an opportunity to take part in the Holiday Mail for Heroes program, which offers residents the opportunity to fill out free holiday greeting cards, available in the lobby, for delivery to troops in the United States Armed Forces stationed in the homeland and around the globe.
Due to the ‘Holiday on Ice’ show, the Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center’s regularly scheduled public skating sessions slated for 1pm to 3 pm and 3:30 pm to 5:30pm, will be cancelled on December 21st. However, the Town’s two outdoor rinks, located at Marjorie R. Post Community Park in Massapequa and at Syosset-Woodbury Park will be open for visitors. Please call (516) 433-RINK (7465).
