Friends of the Allentown Parks presents the first annual Allentown Winterfest to be held from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, February 8 at Cedar Beach Parkway. Cedar Beach Parkway is located off of N. Ott Street on Parkway Blvd. near Birney Crum Stadium. Admission to the family fun event is free.

There will be horse and carriage rides along Lake Muhlenberg in Cedar Beach Park and along the Rose Garden. Ski and snowboard demonstrations will be presented by Bear Creek Mountain Resort and Conference Center. Also there will be wine-tasting, competitive snowman-snow sculpture building contests, ice sculptures, snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing, a human dog sled race, bonfire, Revolutionary and Civil War reenactors, music, and of course food and drink.

Some events do have a nominal fee. The Snowman Building and the Human Dogsled Race are events which require advance registrations. Visit the Friends of the Allentown Parks website for more information.

Bear Creek Mountain Resort and Burton Snowboards will offer Allentown’s first “Riglet Park“, in which children ages 3 to 6 will be introduced to snowboarding in a fun, safe, playground-like setting.

Plus, all cross-country skiers are invited to bring their skis for a trip around the Parkway.
