The Winter Games are a wonderful celebration of community, fun, and chilly temps. The events are fun and create a winter wonderland. There is something for all ages, and it is a tradition for our family. We’ll be there no matter the temperature!
“We participate in a variety of the events. We love that a lot of the events are supporting local groups and charities!”
“I enjoy everything about the games. The atmosphere–you can’t beat it! It truly is a fantastic experience.”
“Our first Winter Games was the first time many of us had seen a frozen lake for the first time. We had no idea what to expect, but we were hooked from the first one! The amazing people that come from all over makes it such a special event, and we look forward to it all year. We like to call it Lallapolooza on ice. Going to see the great bands play, dancing, singing at the top of our lungs. It’s the most fun for us Texans since it’s the only snow we ever see.”
Sharon, Ansel, Stacy, Lindsey, and Brandon

“It is so much fun. Tons of stuff to do. Great people!”
