The Bowling Green Community is invited to join Bowling Green State University (BGSU) in celebration of the winter season. On Saturday, January 15, from 9 AM – Noon, the Bowen-Thompson Quadrangle, in front of University Hall, will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland full of free family-oriented events and activities!
The scene will be set with an Outdoor Iceless Ice Rink, Polar Express Trackless Train Rides, warm and cozy Fire Tables, and twinkly lights! Activities will also include a Build-a-Bear® Workshop (limited availability), a Gingerbread Bounce House, a Polar Bear Slide, and Horse-Drawn Carriage Rides. Winter themed family recreation games will be provided by the Bowling Green Parks & Recreation Department.
“BGSU is located in a true college town, and opening our Winter Wonderland event to the community certainly provides a small token of appreciation and an opportunity to thank Bowling Green for all they do for our students,” BGSU President Rodney K. Rogers said.
“I’m thrilled that BGSU has invited our community members to experience the Winter Wonderland event! I look forward to every opportunity to join in celebration with the University as one community,” Mayor Aspacher said.
This event is being sponsored by BGSU and is free of charge. All activities will be held outdoors. Attendees should park on campus, in Parking Lot E, which is west of Thurstin Ave. (entrances on Pike or Court).
