On Saturday, February 24, from 2 to 6 p.m., the newly opened ice rink in LaVern M. Johnson Park will be the center of activities, of the first annual Lyons Chill Fest. The event, a co-production of the Lyons Area Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Lyons, is a community celebration of the winter season, recognizing Lyons businesses, organizations, and community.
The Chill Fest will include free ice skating and rentals, live music, libations, hot cocoa, snacks, and fun activities for the whole family. Local nonprofits and businesses will host booths and activities, and don’t miss the Lyons Polar Bear Club’s “Polar Plunge”, taking place in the adjacent North St. Vrain!
In addition, the Chamber will be giving away $5 vouchers, valid at any participating Lyons business! For the price of a quick survey, guests will attain a voucher, which will be redeemable for the remainder of the weekend.
All are invited to celebrate the chill season, with music, ice skating, hot cocoa, and keeping it local! Free event parking will be available.
