ES­CAPE the heat and en­joy a true white Christ­mas on Mon­day at War­rina Ice Rink’s Ice Spec­tac­u­lar Show.

Or­gan­iser Erin Ed­wards said the skat­ing show would make a cool change from the tra­di­tional Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tions in Townsville.

Ms Ed­wards said young skaters had teamed up with se­nior ice hockey play­ers and re­hearsed dances to the sounds of Kylie Minogue, Whit­ney Hous­ton, Michael Bublé and The Jackson 5.

“We kind of wanted to get away from the bor­ing, tra­di­tional stuff,” she said.

“We’re show­cas­ing all dif­fer­ent Christ­mas songs with all dif­fer­ent skaters and ice hockey play­ers.

“Some of the younger skaters are four years old and some of the older ones are 30, and some of the se­nior ice hockey play­ers are older than 30.”

Ms Ed­wards said ju­nior skaters had a num­ber of com­pe­ti­tions this year and the Ice Spec­tac­u­lar Show would bring the year to an end. The show starts at 7pm with tick­ets, cost­ing $ 5, avail­able at the door.
