snowflake9.pngUGLY SWEATER CONTEST … We all have one.  Thanks to our grandmothers or bad decisions, we have been stuck with these little fashion gems. Now you can show off this amazing piece of embarrassing knitting. 

Be sure to bring your sweater to the event to show it off on stage for judging by our expert judges.  The public will help to determine the winners of this fun and somewhat hilarious contest.

Be sure to register at the event to compete for the coveted WinterFest Snowman Award!


If you do, please get down to WinterFest on Sunday, December 2nd to compete in our first annual Santa Look-a-like contest judges by none other than the big man himself.  It’s going to be a wiggle when you laugh like a bowl full of jelly good time!



This is an important job! To help the big man himself on his mission to bring joy to families during the holidays is a TALL order. 

SO, if you have what it takes to help the jolly old elf himself, then, WE WANT YOU to help us with mission critical tasks like helping our guests: 

  • take their photos with Santa,
  • decorate the Christmas tree cupcakes
  • participate in the snowball toss challenge
  • Build a snowman (with marshmallows)
  • Pet the animals in Santas Petting Zoo
  • and much more!
