The whimsy and frosty fantasy will enchant you. As the dark days of winter near, glorious costumes and barefoot dancing in shimmering snow, huge candy canes, assorted boisterous "whovillians," an elegant snow queen, a mysterious archaic figure, and more are designed to bring smiles and wonder to faces and hearts. All ages are welcome.
