The Wilmette Park District and Centennial Ice Rink held their 35th Annual Spring Ice Show this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. More than 200 skating students, all of which take lessons at Centennial, participated in the show, skating in solo and group performances. Skaters of all ages took part, ranging in age from four to twenty-one. This years theme was "Opposites Attract", the show incorporated a lineup of songs with opposite meanings, such as "Forget You" and "Do You Remember" or "Fire Burning" and "Ice Ice Baby".

Wilmette's Police Department and Historical Museum hosted a behind-the-scenes tour on Sunday.
Families and children shuttling back and forth between the Historical Museum and Police Department Sunday were treated to free hot dogs and cupcakes, a concert by the Wilmette Community Band and close-up looks of various emergency services. While the open houses are an annual event, they also coincided with the 60th anniversary of the historical museum. A day of perfect weather contributed to a large turnout, one officer said they would probably see between 700 and 800 people move through the station. Attendees got a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes at both institutions. Did you miss the open houses? Flip through the photo gallery to check out the events.
