A Winter Wonderland You Can’t Miss 1  


If you’ve been around here for any amount of time, you’ve probably noticed I’m a huge snow lover. Well, when I heard they were going to be trucking in snow from Mount Baker for this event, I was immediately intrigued! Sledding and snowman creating, sleigh rides, snowshoeing, bouncy houses and SO MUCH MORE, all for FREE?! Yes, please!

The Children’s Museum of Skagit County is creating a Winter Wonderland at the Cascade Mall in Burlington on December 8th, 9th & 10th! This will be an event that you will absolutely NOT want to miss! There will be activities for children, families, teens, and adults – indoor and outdoor fun for everyone.

The entire event is 100% FREE and I would like to encourage local readers as well as those from all over the Pacific Northwest to enjoy it this incredible weekend. Make it a family get away and find some great deals on lodging here. 
Every day there will be REAL SNOW from Mt. Baker for the kids to play in. You can also learn about skiing and snowboarding, build a snowman, try snowshoeing, snow painting & more! You can warm up inside the mall each day with bouncy inflatables of all shapes & sizes, carnival games, face painting, crafts, mini golf and the list of activities is STILL GROWING! Plan to feed your group at one of the local food trucks. The Children’s Museum will be open as well as the Holiday Toy Store where kids can purchase gifts under $5 for their family members and wrap them before they leave.
