Midwinter Melt

In partnership with Silverwood Park, Melanin in Motion, and Target
Fri, Feb 2, 5–9 pm

Silverwood Park
Tickets: Free

Break out of your winter routine and join The Great Northern and Silverwood Park – in partnership with Melanin in Motion and Target – for an evening of spectacular shadows, mesmerizing lights, and outdoor fun at Silverwood Park celebrating the halfway point between winter and spring (Groundhog Day). 

Activities include kicksledding, luminary trails for walking, campfires for making s’mores, and the premiere of this year’s dazzling cosmic footgolf course—designed by teams of artists and members of the public. Target will host a hands-on solar lamp-making station and provide opportunities to cozy up with snacks from Cookie Cart, drinks from Flava Coffee, and collaboration nooks to brainstorm a more sustainable future.

At 5 pm, Melanin in Motion invites the community to arrive early for a fireside gathering with a warming soup dinner and set by DJ QBear of KMOJ on Silverwood's outdoor patio. From there, everyone is invited to explore the ample illuminated wonders throughout the park.

This event is free and open to all ages. Drop-ins are welcome.

Silverwood Park is accessible by public transportation. There is also free parking available onsite.

Please note that photographs and video footage may be taken throughout this event. These will be used by The Great Northern and its partners for marketing and publicity, our archives, on our website and in social media.

Thank you to Target for their support of the family-friendly activations at this event.
