SocialICE FAM JAM is a cool time for families to celebrate winter in downtown Rochester! Warm up or cool down with the family-friendly fun from 1 to 4 p.m. With a sneak peek into the event, here's an insider's guide to attending SocialICE FAM JAM February 8!
SocialICE FAM JAM activities bring the heat to Peace Plaza and keep the kiddos warm. Before it all starts, warm up with snow yoga from 1 to 1:30 p.m. with Yoga Tribe. Get moving with Zumba by Zoom to the Music at 1:30 p.m. Stomp along with a Journie Stomp Group performance at 2 p.m. Though it may be difficult to do in snow pants, the LED hula hoops are a bright spot on a cold winter day. Get your little ones interested in new winter sports with curling presented by Destination Medical Center. They'll learn from the Rochester Curling Club how to clean (different from their weekly chores; sorry parents!). For another illuminated activity, let them try the basketball-like snowball toss.
If your little one's nose gets a-chillin' after all the outdoor fun, bring them into the Warming House Igloo presented by Majestic Events and KTTC TV. Here, they (and you) will find respite from the winter cold. Or head to one of the fire pits provided by Kraus-Anderson. Build a delicious hot s'more to warm up the insides or bring those icicle-feeling extremities close to ease the chill.
Mittens? Got 'em. Hat? Check. Boots? Absolutely. When it comes to dressing your kids for a cold-weather outing to SocialICE FAM JAM, there are many items of clothing to consider. What is it your child really needs to enjoy the snow? Here are some basic tips for making sure your kiddos are toasty:
