The Northbrook Park District recently earned four awards from the Illinois Park and Recreation Association (IPRA) during IPRA's annual conference in Chicago on Jan. 26.
Northbrook-On-Ice, an annual ice production from the Park District, received the 2012 Outstanding Special Event Award.
The park district also received three awards in the Agency Showcase, a competition that recognizes Illinois park agencies for their marketing and communication efforts. The District won first-place awards for Overall Agency Showcase, Social Media and Green Marketing.
Northbrook-On-Ice returns this year for three days in May for the 44th year. The showcase dazzles audiences with thrilling skating, spectacular costumes and professional sets and lighting.
Due to its longevity, passion for tradition, pursuit of excellence and attention to detail, Northbrook-On-Ice is considered one of the top amateur ice productions in the country.
The treasured tradition returns to the Northbrook Sports Center for four performances during Mother’s Day weekend, May 10-12, and tickets go on sale March 4.
