Tonight, it’s the big Community Celebration – doors open at 4, party starts at 8 and runs until midnight, with the Tim Sigler Band (a Minnesota country act) taking the stage.

Before the party, there’s also the Vasa Friendship Tour – a short ski run that begins at the Nordic Center, and ends at the library park gazebo.

Everyone is invited – whether you ski or not, there’ll be plenty to do in the park. A beautiful ice skating rink awaits, along with a bonfire, hot chocolate and hot blueberry soup, and plenty of fun in the snow. The event wraps up just in time for the beginning of the Community Celebration, with the tent only two blocks away.
