Carnival and Comedy

Slipping and sliding at Pentagon Row is one way to bring back the holiday cheer.

Families, friends and music lovers were invited to listen to the easy beats of the band Woodburn Road as they enjoyed festivities surrounding the Pentagon Row Ice Skating Gala Thursday evening.

Braced and bundled for the cold, yet flushed from laps around the ice skating rink, attendees were mesmerized by stilt walkers standing tall in the wind, funny faced mimes playing practical jokes, and savvy skaters turning pirouettes on center ice.

And the gliding was for good! Rental fees for one skate of every pair (50%) were donated to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
