“Hehehe Dada, you’re silly.”
“No, really! Cars! On skates!”
“Really! And that’s not all. There will also be a cowboy and an astronaut on skates too.”
“Hehehe, Dada! Cowboys and astronauts don’t skate, they ride horses and spaceships!”
“And did I mention that, if we’re lucky, we might get to see some mice skating too?”
“Mice don’t skaaaate!”
“Oh? Well, we’ll see about that.”
So that’s how I broke the news to my kids that we’re going to see the new Disney On Ice present Worlds of Enchantment show, that is coming to Portland next week, from October 20-23, 2016 at the Moda Center!
We’re really excited about this. The only big live show they’ve ever been to before was the Marvel Universe LIVE show we all got to take in last year, and they are primed and ready. Sure, there’s no web-slinging this time, but the fact that they actually get to see cars on skates has their imaginations bursting.
While I don’t do it much now, as a Canadian, I, of course, grew up skating. Whether it was at hockey lessons, or on the rink that was constructed each winter at the local park, skating was a part of life once the weather got chilly.
We don’t get to do that here in mild, drizzly Portland (although my wife has fond childhood memories of watching the infamous Tonya Harding practice at the Lloyd Center Mall skating rink!) but if I can’t skate myself, I can do the next best thing and watch professionals do it better than I ever could.
