Thousands of attendees are expected to attend this free community event on Dec. 21, which will begin with Santa arriving by parachute.
For the eighth year in a row, MetroWest Master Association (MWMA) will welcome thousands of attendees to the annual WinterFest. It will be held this year on Saturday, Dec. 21 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the MetroWest Golf Club.
“WinterFest is an important community event to bring the MetroWest neighborhood together for an afternoon of holiday fun and camaraderie,” says Julie Sanchez, MWMA General Manager. “We’ve designed WinterFest so that families with young children can enjoy a free, holiday-themed event.”
WinterFest 2019 will begin with Santa (and, it is hoped, Buzz Lightyear) parachuting in, much to the delight of the children (and many adults) in attendance. It is a free, family friendly event with fun for all ages.
This year’s entertainment will include:
• The hit movie “Toy Story 4” shown on a big screen on the MetroWest Golf Club green
• Live Woody, Buzz Lightyear and Jessie characters
• Free photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus
• Holiday-themed performances by MetroWest Elementary School and Westpointe Elementary School
• A snow slide, merry-go-round, bungie bouncer, ballistic swing carnival ride and skating rink
• Face painters and pony rides
• Food Truck Zone
• Giant holiday tree with a “Toy Story” theme
WinterFest will also feature a check presentation from MWMA to MetroWest Elementary School and Westpointe Elementary School.
MetroWest WinterFest 2019 benefits Edgewood Children’s Ranch, a nonprofit, residential program that helps boys and girls ages 6-17 address and overcome behavioral issues in a positive, safe environment. Every year, MetroWest communities and businesses compete in the MetroWest WinterFest Charity Challenge by collecting dry goods, sporting equipment, gift cards and more for the ranch.
“Edgewood Children’s Ranch is part of our MetroWest community and offers much-needed support for children with behavioral challenges. It’s our honor to support the ranch and its exemplary residential program,” Sanchez says.
Attendees who plan to watch “Toy Story 4” at the end of the WinterFest event should bring blankets to sit on. Pets and coolers are not allowed.
WinterFest will be held rain or shine, except in the case of extreme weather. For more information, visit www.metrowestcommunity.com or like MWMA on Facebook at www.facebook.com/MetroWestMasterAssociation.
