10th Annual Winter Park Community Celebration
January 18 @ 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Formerly known as the “Between the Holidays” celebration, this outdoor event was previously sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and then the Boulder Junction Community Foundation. For years, the celebration took place between Christmas and New Year’s. The parks board decided to continue the tradition – this will be its 10th year – moving it to mid-January to ensure wintery weather. The board hopes to carry on the tradition of bringing families together to enjoy some good old fashioned wintertime fun.
This year’s event will highlight winter park’s lighted full-sized ice skating rink, a sledding hill and – for those looking for a little adventure — a guided snow shoe and cross country ski trek around its 1-mile loop. The oblong ski loop at winter park is perfect for beginners and families.
A roaring bon fire with campfire songs and upbeat music will complete the atmosphere. Guests are encouraged to be as active as they’d like, or to simply sit by the fire and enjoy friendly conversation in this winter wonderland setting. Enjoy a complimentary hot dog, s’more, and hot chocolate while making new friends and reconnecting with old ones.
Food – Hot dogs and s’mores over the open fire.
Drinks – Hot chocolate, coffee and bottled water
Guided cross country ski/snowshoe trek around the 1-mile trail during daylight (up until 5:00)
Facilitated by the Boulder Junction Parks Board
Hosts: Dick Jenks and Barb Boston – 715-605-2036
All costs covered by private donations
