Through two full acts, 10 of the best skaters in the world presented a seasonal spectacular at the Essar Centre Sunday night as the Holiday Festival On Ice tour stopped in Sault Ste. Marie.

Spreading some good cheer on this year's tour were Kurt Browning, Jeffrey Buttle, Patrick Chan, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, Shawn Sawyer, Kimmie Meissner, Alexandra Paul and Mitchell Islam, and Gabrielle Daleman.

As individuals, this troupe of talented athletes has amassed an impressive pile of hardware, including 11 World Championship golds, 14 Canadian Championship golds, and six Olympic medals.

Four-time World Champion Kurt Browning told SooToday.com that this annual holiday tour has become a welcome tradition for he and his cohorts.

"We get together with our skating family, Jeffery [Buttle] always puts together a fun show for us to enjoy each other's company, and we invite some friends… the audience," he said.
