2nd Annual Frostival Coming Soon | Community Spirit
From Carol Nahorniak:
CHANTILLY, VA –- Celebrate Fairfax, Inc. is proud to present its newest family friendly event: FROSTIVAL. The second annual FROSTIVAL is an exciting winter-themed family festival, with programs targeted to elementary and pre-K aged children. FROSTIVAL is set to take place December 30, 2010 through January 2, 2011 at the Dulles Expo and Conference Center, 4368 Chantilly Shopping Center, Chantilly, Virginia.
At the end of the winter holiday break, families are looking for experiences combining entertainment, interactive activities and programs for the family to take part in together. Celebrate Fairfax’s FROSTIVAL is just that event. Designed to engage event visitors in a family-friendly atmosphere, the FROSTIVAL will include more than 15 winter-themed crafts, interactive science activities and games, professional and local celebrity storytelling, 15 bounces, slides and rides, two stages featuring nationally recognized children’s performers, as well as numerous exhibits and vendors.
In support of Western Fairfax Christian Ministries and Passion 4 Community, two local non-profit organizations, the FROSTIVAL will be hosting a “Coats & Cans” Drive to collect canned food items as well as new and gently used winter coats to provide to families in need. For every one coat and/or two canned food items donated, donors will receive one entry into a raffle for a chance to win four ski lift passes and a three day / two night stay at Massanutten Resort.
