Candlelight Ski Party at Frontenac State Park on Jan. 19

From Frontenac State Park Association

Everyone is invited to Frontenac State Park’s Candlelight Ski / Showshoe / Walk Party on Saturday, January 19th from 5 – 8 p.m. Come join in the annual candlelight event. Enjoy a hike, ski, or snowshoe on 2 different lit trails – 0.4 mile loop and a 1 mile loop. The trails will be lined with ice candle luminaries. All are welcome to warm up by the bonfire and relax with a cup of hot chocolate, s’mores, and other snacks provided by the Frontenac State Park Association. Visitors can also join in games, puzzles, and coloring in the shelter. This is a family friendly event.

We hope for clear skies because the Moon will be almost full that night.
