MISSOULA – The holiday spirit was in full display over the weekend in Missoula.

Glacier Ice Rink displayed Christmas trees on top of a “snow” pile for some holiday skating on Saturday.

They even brought out a youth skating coach dressed as Santa Claus to help mark the occasion.

Santa rode in on a Zamboni and skated around the rink on Saturday afternoon.

He also twirled and whirled to Christmas music and helped kids stay up on their skates.

Santa posed for photos with kids and they followed him around the ice rink like a school of fish.

This was the rink’s sixth year skating with Santa.
