For the KIDS

Winterfest Family Fun Day at Wollman Rink in Central Park, benefitting K.I.D.S.
On January 29th, Big City Moms and Scooter Magazine hosted Winterfest Family Fun Day, a not-to-be-missed kids ice skating event at Wollman Skating Rink. Kids brought their friends, met new ones, all while skating and enjoying the beautiful park views. There was even a full buffet lunch in a heated tent, a concert by Rockin Railroad, gift bags and some surprises!
