Don't miss out on this festive family event, postponed due the COVID-19! With activities scaled back for the community event, you can still enjoy sledding, ice skating, pony rides and train rides. Social distancing will be observed, and we ask that anyone ages 3+ wear a mask. This ticketed event is free to attend and all attractions are free as well.
