Revelstoke Skating Club performance inspired by Cirque du Soleil

With the smell of popcorn floating in the mezzanine and carnival games lining the halls, members of the Revelstoke Skating Club took to the ice to perform their carnival.

Inspired by Cirque du Soleil, the show featured circus animals, clowns, acrobats and more, including skaters of all ages and abilities.

Volunteers transformed the Forum from a community arena into a big top, complete with sparkling lights and a massive silhouetted circus backdrop.

Audience members were transported under the big top for the show.
