WILLMAR — Low lights set the mood at the Willmar Civic Center Saturday evening as a slew of savvy skaters danced across the ice to entertain a packed house of proud parents and community members.
Returning after a hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions last year, the Diamond Edge Figure Skating Club brought the heat of warmer weather on the beach with this year's theme, Skatecation.
