ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Mascots for the Rochester Red Wings and Rochester Knighthawks showed off some fancy footwork Wednesday with the Rochester City Ballet, in what was called a bird challenge.

Spikes and R. Thunder competed against each other in good spirit to help promote this weekend's performance of The Ugly Duckling.

Two showings are scheduled, for Saturday and Sunday, both at 2 p.m.,  in the Callahan Theater at Nazareth College Arts Center.
