Choreographed ice skating isn't just for the Olympics. The Gliding Stars of Greater Toledo, which provides customized equipment and volunteer instruction to people with special physical and mental needs, making them feel like skating stars, will present their annual ice show on Sunday, March 24th. Stars train for 26 weeks in preparation for the season end show — this one, the biggest in the organization’s five-year history, features 39 stars, including three wheelchair-assisted skaters with a little assistance from Gliding Stars volunteers. Tickets will be $5 at the door. 2:30-4:00pm. Tam-O-Shanter, 7060 Sylvania Ave., Sylvania.
