Family Fun - Estes Park Winter Festival
If you are looking for a fun winter activity for your family, or a unique date (really, dinner and a movie are fun...but this will take it up a notch!), consider heading to Estes Park, CO for the 2nd Annual Winter Festival. It will take place over Martin Luther King weekend, January 14-17. This year there will be an Interactive Ice Castle and playground maze (can you picture it all lit up at night? Magical!). It will be so much fun for the kiddos, and those of us who like to feel like a kid again! Rocky Mountain National Park will have their 16th annual Winter Trails in the park with free snowshoe rentals and clinics - it's a great way to explore the National Park in winter. There will be live music and entertainment throughout the weekend in Bond Park. If you're a treasure hunter, there will be a MEGA Downtown Scavenger Hunt with over $1,000 in prizes. For foodies, there will be wine and beer tastings, and a Chili Cook-off with both professional and amateur chilistas. You can satisfy your inner artist by going on a Winter Photo Tour, or shop 'til you drop in the heated area featuring local vendors. And if you just want to relax in a stunning mountain atmosphere, local spas will be offering specials all weekend.
