Costumed carnival on ice 

7 p.m., Verizon Arena. $12.75.

Arkansas, I gotta tell you, if there's one thing about impending parenthood that scares me, it's the promise of forced attendance at this annual giant-headed costumed carnival on ice. But they say kids change you. Maybe mine will help me wrap my mind around Donald Duck jumping past pants and shoes to skates and a zoot-suited Mickey Mouse sporting a Mardi Gras mask while skate-dancing. But I'm not holding my breath. At this year's edition, “Let's Celebrate!,” Donald and Mickey are joined by a host of classic characters — Minnie, Cinderella, Alice and the Mad Hatter. Plus, more modern day ones like Ariel, Tiana, Buzz Lightyear and Lilo & Stitch. There are seven performances through Sunday: 10:30 a.m. (school show not open to the public) and 7 p.m. Friday; 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets for all performances after opening night range from $15.75 to $45.75. Groups of 15 get a discount.
