Nothing complements the Alberta snow better than some skating. On Oct. 19, 2019, don’t miss the figure skating show “Rock the Rink" at the Canalta Centre right here in Medicine Hat. Skating superstars such as Tessa Virtue, Scott Moir, and Patrick Chan will take to the ice for a full-on production, which includes bright lights, videos and live music by special musical guests Birds of Bellwoods. Stars such as Jeremy Abbot and Kaetlyn Osmond, among others, will also be performing. Tickets are bound to sell out fast, so be sure to purchase Rock the Rink tickets in advance!
