In collaboration with the City of Valdez’ Parks and Recreation Department, Prince William Sound Community College is putting on the inaugural Winterfest on Saturday, December 7, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 pm, at their campus in Valdez. Winterfest is designed to be an annually recurring winter celebration to get students and the community at large excited, equipped, and prepared for another epic winter season!
During the day, the new Atrium of the Health & Fitness Center will be filled with booths for local vendors & outfitters, outdoor educators, and appropriate government agencies. There will be other concurrent activities, including children’s snowshoe races and a scavenger hunt, challenge games, and a silent auction. The day will culminate with the Winterfest Gauntlet, a wild adults-only event filled with slips, falls, snowballs, and snowshoe racing action.
At 5:00 p.m., we will switch venues to the Fat Mermaid for the Valdez Adventure Film Night, featuring local outdoor adventure short films until 7:00, and then having showings of feature films The Steep Life (from Dean Cummings of H2O Guides) and High Ground, a film by Emmy award winning adventure film director, Michael Brown.
Winterfest promises to be a great event for the community, and I hope you will join us in our inaugural year. For more information, contact DB Palmer at 834-1668.
