The City of Detroit will hold a three-day event at Palmer Park dubbed WinterFest.

The event, set for Feb. 11 – 14, will feature sledding, ice skating, snowshoeing, carriage rides, food trucks and more.

“This event is a family-friendly way to give back to our city, and we couldn’t be happier to provide all of it for free,” City of Detroit group executive Brad Dick said in a statement. “Detroiters know we have the gift of having all four seasons, so we wanted to provide an opportunity to enjoy winter at one of Detroit’s premier parks.”

The City of Detroit WinterFest community has teamed with People For Palmer Park and Bedrock to put on the event.
