Winter Jam 2013 in Central Park

The NYC Parks Department and the Olympic Regional Development Authority sponsored today's Winter Jam which transformed Central Park into a manmade snow covered winter sports park for people and their pets. It was a perfect day for the event because of the snowfall the night before. The event featured the Lake Placid Snow Field, Cross-Country Skiing, Snowshoeing, Skiing, Snowboarding, Unreal Ice Lounge and the Red Bull MetroRail. Other activities included Learning to Play Quidditch, Animal Tracking with the Urban Park Rangers, Pride of New York Winter Market, NY State Ski Resorts Info Booths and Live Entertainment. This year, there was a Doggie Snow Zone that featured Doggie Snow Park, ‘Ask the Expert’ Booth, Café Area and Doggie Treat Bar, Adoptable Animals, Vendor Booths and a limited Treat Bag Giveaway. As in past years, there was live music, food and beverage booths.
