Winterfest Returns to Cleveland, Welcome to “Snow Days”

It’s that time of year – the cold and snow are coming and so are the winter holidays. This also means that Winterfest will be here, starting on November 27, 2010.

The newest addition to Winterfest is the Cleveland Indians "Snow Days" at Progressive Field where the Cleveland Indians ballpark is turned into a winter themed snow park, with snow tubing, ice skating, food/beverages and much more. I think this is a wonderful idea and a great use of Progressive Field during the cold and snowy season. Some of the events and features are as follows:

The Batterhorn (Snow Tubing), presented by RTA
10-lane snow tubing hill on top of Time Warner Cable Bleachers (eight adult lanes and two children's lanes starting at the top of the outfield wall)

The Frozen Mile (Ice Skating)
1/4 mile ice skating path around the outfield, the first in the United States

Slider's Snow Zone
Kids play area in deep left field

The Rookie Rink (Ice Skating)
Ice skating rink for beginning skaters in the left field corner

Slider's Snow Zone
Kids play area in deep left field

Winter Haven Walking Trail through the outfield featuring winter lights and a 3,000 square foot snow maze

Home Run Porch Area to congregate and watch the festivities, complete with fire pit and concessions

Indians Home Dugout Heaters will be turned on in the Indians home dugout on the third base line

“Snow Days” runs from November 26th through January 2nd and will be open from 10am until 10pm on the day of Winterfest. For more information about event dates and hours visit the
