PNC Winterfest, Peoria’s newest holiday tradition is back and bigger than before! This 2nd annual event gives central Illinois the chance to enjoy outdoor ice skating on the corner of Fulton Street and Jefferson Avenue! Bring your own skates or rent them from the skate shack. The skate shack carries skates from size 9 in juniors through 13 adults. Spectators can watch the action from a heated tent with seating and refreshments. PNC Winterfest will also feature Peoria’s only ice slide, a 100ft long, 6ft wide slide made of ice! Slide down on a disc, fun for all ages!
Wildlife Prairie Park transforms into a Winter Wonderland! Take a train ride through the North Pole and enjoy games, crafts, cookie decorating, pictures with Santa and animal encounters!
Get ready for a Santa invasion at the second annual Santa Cause 5K! This is a family friendly event for all ages; a great activity for the whole family to participate in during the holiday season. Take part in the 5K and enjoy festivities after. All participants will receive a five piece Santa suit (you will have to wear the suit, or you aren't really Santa and don't get to race). This year, proceeds will benefit Dream Center Peoria. Join the cause and embrace your inner Santa.
