Skaters dressed in traditional Dutch costumes skate on the canal in Hindeloopen January 26, 2013. When the canals and lakes freeze, the Dutch get out their skates and venture out on the ice. In Friesland, skaters dressed in traditional costumes gather for a day of ice skating, pole-sledding, and other entertainment on ice. The skaters wear an old-fashioned form of skate with special blades to help them glide across the ice without tiring, and usually skate together in couples or groups
