No, there's no snow yet, but are you looking for some winter fun?

Bring the family and celebrate the Winter Solstice with a bonfire at Glenwood Children's Park this Sunday, December 18th from 6 pm to 10 pm.

The evening will begin with sledding if Mother Nature has blessed us with snow by that date. Smores ingredients will be provided to attendees until supplies run out. Bring a mug to enjoy hot cider. Guests are encouraged to bring food and beverages to enjoy around the bonfire.

Entertainment will include local musicians and spoken word artists.

Glenwood Children's Park is a back-to-nature real place to be a kid. The Parenting Tweens Examiner's column has often lauded the virtues and specialness of the Glenwood Children's Park. It is the place to come to revel and frolic in nature, to build forts in the old rock quarry, and to explore an underground tunnel.


Thank you to Peter A. Nause of the Dudgeon-Monroe Neighborhood Association for providing event details.

Fun fact: There might be a letterbox and/or geocache hidden in this park. Do you know about letterboxing??
