Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Lace up those skates and sharpen the blades, it's time for the Duluth Figure Skating Club's annual ice show.

125 skaters took to the ice at Mars Arena today for the yearly Ice Show: Made in the USA.

Skaters ranged in age from just three to 25 years old, and were made up of soloist, synchronized groups and beginners.

This was the first show for some of the young skaters, but also knew to the show were the UMD Synchro team who participated for the first time this year.

The event is celebrating its 15th anniversary since being restored after a hiatus.

"They quit doing it when I was a little girl, and I brought it back to our club because I knew that this would be such a wonderful recreational thing for our Learn to Skate program," said show director Heather Seyfer, "but also to our kids who we–need to just come out and have fun without the pressure of competition."

There were two performances at the Mars Arena Saturday.
