If you love the cold weather and all the outdoor activities that go along with it, head to Central Park tomorrow and take part in the Winter Jam, a free winter sports festival right here in the middle of Manhattan.
There will be sledding and cross country skiing and snowshoeing. (I’ve always wanted to do that. Basically because if you fall, you most likely won’t break anything, right?) There will also be lessons in skiing and snowboarding. You can bring your own equipment if you like, but there will be some available to use at no cost.
Doggie lovers should note that the event is partially sponsored by Iams, so there will be a canine salon and spa, where your pooch can get a free grooming and trim. And a Tail-gate cafe for snacks. (Get it?)
Funny enough, the Parks Dept. was spraying the area with manufactured snow when the storm hit this week–so ultimately we’ve got double the flakes!
The party lasts from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Enter Central Park at 72nd street and head to the Bandshell area–I’m sure you’ll see it right away.
And if you do go, please try to help those in need and bring a new or gently-used coat to donate to the New York Cares Coat Drive.
Have a great weekend!
