Kerry Park Skating Club's Cowichan Country Christmas put spectators in the holiday spirit at Kerry Park Arena Saturday.

Skaters of all levels took part in the ice show in front of proud parents and family members.

The ice show was a combination of the usual pop concert and carnival due to costs.

"We didn't get any gaming money again this year and the carnival with all of the lights and props cost too much money,'' explained Catherine Whittome, the mother of senior skater Kathleen.

Skaters were still decked out in holiday costumes that brightened up the ice during the performance.

Only a $5 admission was charged plus a donation to the food bank. The club also celebrated the season with a 50-50 draw, bake sale and gift baskets.
