Also, look for Model-T rides. On Saturday at 1:30 p.m. you can skate with alumni from the Detroit red Wings. Todd Eldredge will be skating at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday.

General Motors is sponsoring the Ice Garden. That's where you will find the Sprint Stage where many national acts will be performing. Remember it's all FREE of charge.
