Winter Winners

If you're in NYC/BK/Queens/Harlem/Bronx & you enjoy "winter sports" you might want to check this out Saturday:

You're invited to Winter Jam NYC!

Looking for some fun in the snow but can't get out of the city?
Join the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation on
Saturday, February 7 for Winter Jam NYC 2009!

Taking place at historic East River Park at Houston Street and FDR
Drive, Winter Jam NYC will feature a 70-foot long Snow Flume for
sledding, a professional snowboarding competition on a 90-foot
tall "Snowscraper," a winter snowfield with snowshoeing and cross-
country skiing, a snowman-making contest, a synthetic ice climbing
wall, a Warming Hut with free samples from NY State farmers,
trampoline performances by the acrobatic Skyriders, live music
from artists such as Apollo Run and Dujeous, and plenty of fun
activities for all ages. With so much entertainment in one spot,
this year's Winter Jam NYC is gearing up to be the best yet!

This event is FREE, and winter sports equipment will be provided,
including tubes for sledding, snow shoes, and cross-country skis.

We look forward to seeing you at Winter Jam NYC!
