Winter Cozy
A “Winterval” Event
Saturday, January 27, 8:00-10:00 p.m.     
Headwaters Park West

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, and drink luges. Join us as we remember what winter used to be: fun! Admission is $10 at the door. This event is 21+. More information is available at www.RiverfrontFW.org or by calling Megan Butler at (260) 427-6248. Sponsored by Alt 99.5, Riverfront Fort Wayne, and Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation.
