Ice skating tradition spreads holiday cheer
BATON ROUGE - To make it feel a little more like Christmas, the Raising Cane's River Center has been frozen. If feeling "cold" is more your style, put on some ice skates and try to keep your balance.
"If I fall, I just get back up," said Layton Savoy.
For some families, skating at the River Center has become a family tradition. Sue Coates, the ice monitor at the rink says she visits with many of them year after year.
"They just have a lot of fun," she said.
Coates has been an ice monitor at the River Center for at least two decades, probably more.
"You'll see a lot of beginner skaters, some people have never been on the ice before," she said.
Ice skating at the River Center started December 21 and will go until January 2 at the arena.
