Even if it’s chilly and bleak out with no snow to brighten up the landscape, there’s still a lot of fun to be had outdoors (and inside) as the Geauga Park District’s Frozen Fest has been demonstrating since 2015.
The sixth annual fest features the chance to meet sled doors and live reindeer, a reindeer herder, a “winter snowman” and winter princesses with meet-and-greets throughout the day, along with performances in the lobby of the West Woods Nature Center. There’ll be ice carving demonstrations, a touchable winter wildlife display, indoor igloo fort building, snowshoeing if weather permits, and self-guided hiking and use of the bird feeding station if there isn’t.
In addition, there’ll be face painting, winter-themed crafts, live music by the Oak Island Skunk Jumpers, free cocoa and cookies and other food for sale, and gift-shopping available in the Tree Tops Nature Store.
Because the event is popular, people are requested to register at geaugaparkdistrict. It’s free and open to all.
The West Woods lots fill quickly during Frozen Fest, so there’s overflow parking at ASM International and Teague Plaza, with free shuttles running throughout the day.
