Visit with Santa, 4-5PMSanta

Every Winterfest, Santa visits the South Ridge Lodge. He arrives with all the bells and whistles--litterally. Kids of all ages can come tell Santa whether they have been nice or naughty, their Christmas wishes, and walk away with something from the North Pole.  

Hanukkah Party

Sunday River invites guests to its annual Hanukkah Party at the Peak Lodge. The traditional lighting of the candles will be paired with other customs such as traditional food, games, and decorations.

Torch Light Parade & Fireworks, approximately 8:15-8:40PM
Just like lighting candles on a cake, Sunday River will light its trails up with torches--fifty eight torches to be exact. Come to South Ridge to view Fireworks some of Sunday River's finest skiers and riders whisk down Risky Business to South Ridge with large lit torches. The icing on the cake?  An amazing fireworks show to follow. But, just wait, the party is just getting started...

Birthday Bash at the Foggy Goggle, 9PM-Midnight

Turn up the volume and the good times at the Foggy Goggle with entertainment from Wild Adriatic. This band is flawlessly tight with infectious melodies and tons of soul. Full of rocking blues, soul, and depth, Wild Adriatic has built an international audience on a combination of groove, grit, and guitar-heavy swagger. W.A. has been whittled into shape by a relentless touring schedule that has them busy 175 days a year, including two European tours and  appearances at festivals like Bonnaroo. There is no doubt they will make this Winterfest Weekend one you won't easily forget. Check out their music: Soundcloud.
