Turkey Leg 5K: Our second annual virtual 5K is a great way to get the family up and moving before the turkey coma sets in. Complete 5K (3.10 miles) and report your completion via email. All participants will be required to submit a screenshot of their completed distance/route using an app that tracks distances (ex Map My Walk). To enhance the fun we’ve added some fun challenges for you to participate in to win prizes! All finishers will receive a long-sleeve, cotton t-shirt (available following program dates).
DIY Gingerbread Houses: Join us for a fun morning of creativity! We’ll provide all of the goodies you need to create a sweet gingerbread house. All children must be accompanied by a caregiver (16+).
Winter Lights Contest: Help spread cheer and possibly win recognition! Entries will be judged on overall impact, visual appeal, uniqueness, variety and tidiness. All entries will be placed on a map so that residents (and visitors) can create their own custom lights tour around town. Judging will take place December 9 – 10. Winners will be announced and maps will be made available on December 16.
Santa Calls: Add some joy to the holiday season with a special call from Santa. You make a wish list and Santa checks it twice, but this year he will check it a third time! Phone calls will be made from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. on Dec 14th to spread holiday cheer to children in Fridley. If you would like your child to get a call from Santa please register online, or give us a call!
