One event on January 13, 2019 at 10:00am
The Annual Sunny Zwilling Memorial Ice Carousel Extravaganza (I.C.E. Fest) is a 2 day event that raises money and awareness for Flyer Pride Pack (Weekend Backpack Food Program) while attempting to regain the World Record for the World’s Largest Spinning Ice Carousel. This has turned into a FREE Family Friendly Weekend Full of Events so there will be lots of entertainment for the whole family! The plan is to have the ice cut ahead of time and we will have warming tents! There will also be hockey, curling, speedskating, open skate for all, figure skating, nordic skiing, and igloo building!
Make sure to “like” our Sunny Zwilling Memorial Ice Carousel Extravaganza- ICE Fest page and stay tuned for more information!
