Children's Winter Festival on the Boston CommonMayor Martin J. Walsh and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department will be bringing the annual Children’s Winter Festival to Boston Common in partnership with the Highland Street Foundation during school vacation week on Wednesday, February 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Among the attractions will the 45-foot-long Toboggan Tunnel mountainous adventure with twin roller lanes, the 30-foot-high inflatable Everest Climb N Slide, and the Snow Mazing maze.

In addition, the Highland Street Foundation is sponsoring a week-long Winter Camp at the Boston Common Frog Pond with free skating and rentals for all ages from Monday, February 19, through Friday, February 23. For more information on the Winter Camp skating, please visit www.highlandstreet.org.

DJs from Magic 106.7 will emcee the festivities, and reps from the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Outdoors Rx program will host scavenger hunts and nature walks. L.L. Bean’s stylish Bootmobile will also be on the scene (imagine: a massive boot on wheels), and the company will host a boot-tossing game, similar to a beanbag toss.

Additional support is being provided by the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center and Cricket Wireless. For more information, please call the Boston Parks and Recreation Department at (617) 635-4505, visit www.cityofboston.gov/parks.
