Snowflake Festival

Snowflake FestivalThe 10th annual Snowflake Festival will be held on Friday, December 5, from 6 - 8 pm at Glazebrook Park. Join the Village in celebrating the holiday season!

The Village is sponsoring a coloring contest in conjunction with the Snowflake Festival this year. The picture to be colored is available here. Please include the child's first name and age on the front of the sheet. On the back, please print the child's full name, grade, parent's name and best phone number to reach the parent. Entries must be submitted to the Parks and Recreation Department, P.O. Box 5067, 6810 Godfrey Road, Godfrey, IL 62035 by Wednesday, December 3rd by 5 pm. All entries will be displayed in the concession stand at the Snowflake Festival. Winners will be announced that night. Winners will be determined by grade level: Preschool, K-1st, 2nd-3rd, and 4th-5th. 

Snowflake Festival has been moved indoors due to the weather. It will now be held at Village Hall, 6810 Godfrey Road, from 6 - 8 pm. The carriage rides have been cancelled as have the chestnuts roasting on an open fire. The outdoor movie is too soggy to show. We will have Santa and Mrs. Claus, Anna and Elsa, hot chocolate and cookies and Christmas cheer! We hope you still can make it.
