Celebrate Winterval the Riverfront way as we indulge in hygge (pronounced “hoo-guh”), a Danish term which refers to a feeling of contentment or well-being. With Riverfront, winter doesn’t have to mean icy roads and sidewalks to shovel. We’ll have a heated tent, cozy furniture, warm cocktails and food for purchase, live music and games, ice sculptures, drink luges and even a bounce house that adults won’t have to share with the kids. Join us as we remember what winter used to be: fun!
Admission is $10 at the door.
Event Starts at 8pm
This event is 21 years and older
Sponsored by Alt 99.5, Riverfront Fort Wayne, and Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation. Winterval is a Fort Wayne Parks & Recreation event.

Start a Thanksgiving Tradition! Walk or run as far or as little you wish at this free event.
Where: 2828 Emerald Lake Dr, Fort Wayne, IN, United States
When: November 23, 2017 @ 8:00AM
Who: Jerry Mazock (email@example.com)
A very informal run-Not a race. It's a free event! Run or walk as many 1.5 mile laps on our neighborhood course as you like, then, come inside for doughnuts, coffee and Holiday Chatter & Cheer. Last year we had 68-72 participants who wanted to get their workout in before their Thanksgiving Day begins. It's also a good alternative for those who don't want to race that day. Hope you can come!
