Wax your sleds and toboggans and get ready for the annual Sledding, Cider & Cookies Party! Multiple runs to choose from. We have runs to fit all skill levels, whether you like a slow leisurely ride or like a little air, we've got you covered. 

Enjoy free cookies and cider. 
The Wildflower ELC building will be open if you get a little chilly or need a restroom break. Some activities will be available indoors. 

This is a FREE event and open to winter lovers of all ages! Plenty of parking available.

Tips for Staying Warm:
Avoid cotton. Cotton absorbs sweat and becomes very cold against the skin. Synthetic materials like polypropylene are preferred.

Layer up! Wear multiple thin layers so you can easily unzip or take off when you get hot, then put back on when you take a break.

Start dry. Try to keep snow out of your clothes. Bib snow pants will keep snow away from your waist and gators will keep snow from getting inside your boots.

Lil' Monster Dash

DATE: Saturday, Oct. 19 from 9AM-10AM


LOCATION: Wildflower Early Learning Center 

This is a free community event. Registration is not necessary but encouraged. 

Suit up your Lil' Monsters and spend an hour outdoors at the Lil' Monster Dash, a 1/3 mile fun run for kids 10 & under. The trail will take racers over the hills, through the woods, and right past Grandma's garden. Each little goblin will get a prize and a bone-strengthening post-race snack.


For those little ghouls not prepared to run, they can participate in a scavenger hunt while dancing to music.


This is a Halloween themed fun run. Costumes are encouraged but not necessary. Parents are welcome to run with their kids.

This event runs on the same day as Surf the Murph and the Savage 100 race at Murphy Hanrehan Park happening just across the street. Once your Lil' Monster is done running, go cheer on the 25, 50, and 100 milers!​
