Jackson Hole Winter FestivalPresident's weekend is just a few days away and the town of Jackson and the Snow King Resort are getting ready for lots of fun activities. The Jackson Hole Winter Festival starts off on Thursday the 16th with a Snow Sculpture Competition on the Historic Jackson Hole Town Square. There is even a special Snow Sculpting event just for kids. A little later in the evening enjoy fine art and fine food with a Downtown Gallery Walk. Many local restaurants have partnered with the art galleries to provide libations along the way. On Friday the 17th, the Snow King Resort is Winter Festival Headquarters with the Margarita Cup Race followed by the Outrageous Air Show and Bash. Don't forget about Moose Hockey as the Cache Valley Trappers take on our own Jackson Hole Moose. Let's go Moose!!!! The Moose will play the Cache Valley Trappers on both Friday and Saturday nights. Look for fireworks and a torch light parade on the Snow King Ski Area Friday night as well. Saturday the 18th is an even bigger day of events. First the Moose Chase Nordic Race takes off at 10 AM followed by the All American Cutter Races a truly unique race combining snow and horse drawn chariots. Later in the afternoon check out the Grand Teton Music Festival Family Concert a great show for all ages or the Alonzo King Lines Ballet. Jackson Hole finishes the evening right back at the Snow King Resort with a repeat of Friday night. More Outrageous Air Show and Moose Hockey! Saturday is going to be a busy day. The Winter Festival wraps up on Sunday with a Dodge-ball Tournament, K-9 Keg Pull, Beer, Brats & Live Music at the Jackson Hole Fairgrounds and day 2 of the All American Cutter Races. Throughout the entire weekend the Snow Sculpture Contest will continue. Did I mention the skiing is still great? The snowmobiling out to Yellowstone and Togwotee are still running strong? Celebrate President's Weekend in Jackson Hole! It's going to be a great party.
