Winterfest Rescheduled Due to Wet Weather

The Mill Valley holiday tradition has been rescheduled for Sunday, December 9th.

With a winter storm on the way, Winterfest will has been moved from this weekend, to Sunday, Dec. 9.

"Even if there were just a moderate, or slight chance of rain, I did not want the possibility of rain being a hazard to anyone's safety," said Mill Valley Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Daniel Escalzo.

The Chamber is formally producing the event of the first time this year, as part of with the city to ensure the organization stays on track in its revitalization efforts.

"I felt it was important to navigate the complicated logistics of rescheduling Winterfest," Escalzo said, "so the community and City of Mill Valley can receive a great holiday event."

However, Dec. 9 and Dec. 16 were the only other possible weekends, the ice skating rink on Depot Plaza and the snow slide had different availabilities.

"We went with the snow slide since it has more attraction value, so hence we unfortunately had to forgo the rink for now," Escalzo said.  "But we have the option to use it again in the future so it's not gone forever. Still, we value the rink and are sad not to include it this year." 

The rest of the festivities will remain the same, with arts and crafts tables, a costume contest, music, Santa Claus and more.
