Winter Events

When the days start to get chilly and the snow begins to fall in the South Shore, it's time for some fun wintertime events! Ice skate with your daughters and their dolls at Deep River Waterpark's Snowflake Skate in December or watch the ice carvers as they compete in the downtown streets of Valparaiso during the Winter Dazzle event in February.

Get out of the cold as you listen to the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra perform the Holiday Pops, enjoy one of the performances at the local theaters or ring in the New Year at the Radisson at Star Plaza's New Year's Eve Bash. Plus don't miss the opportunity to relive the moments of a holiday classic at the "A Christmas Story" Comes Home Exhibit with animatronic window displays from Macy's in New York.
