Cure your winter blues at Goodenow Grove's annual winter festival. This year's theme is "Frozen" and Elsa and Anna will be our special guests. Join themin the nature center where they'll be singing the hits "Let it Snow" and "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?". Take a photo with them or stay and watch a screening of the Disney film, "Frozen," and enjoy some free delicious popcorn. Throughout the day, meet and greet the Siberian Husky Club of Greater Chicago's mushers and sled dog teams and take photos with the dogs. Watch an ice sculptor create a piece of winter art, and enjoy s'mores around an outdoor fire. Conquer the 40-foot sled hill using your own plastic sled or one of Plum Creek Nature Center's giant sled tubes. Strap on some of the nature center's snowshoes, hike the trails, and participate in many other outdoor activities. And then, warm up in the nature center to explore exhibits, and take part in arts and crafts. Free winter giveaways will be given to the first 200 visitors.
