Welcome to Winter Festival - 2018

An event to kick off winter with fun outdoor activities for all!

The Welcome to Winter Festival was held in Payson Park, Portland on Saturday, January 20, 2018. Hosted by WinterKids and the Portland Parks, Recreation & Facilities department, over 850 children and their families of the Greater Portland Area were able to experience the thrill of sledding, snowshoeing, ice skating, and much more.
