  • UPDATE (Jan 3): Due to the frigid temperatures predicted for New Year’s Eve, the planned performances by the White Rose Figure Skating Club were postponed until Downtown Inc’s January First Friday event. However, with the temperatures and wind chills continuing to be dangerously cold, the decision has been made to postpone again. Please watch our Facebook page for an announcement on a rescheduled date and time. Thank you for your understanding.
