Curious George And The Man With The Yellow Hat Go Skiing At Waterville Valley
WATERVILLE VALLEY, NH – The Margret and H.A. Rey Center and Waterville Valley Ski Resort team up to present the first ever Curious George Cottage Winter Family Festival. Curious George and his friend, the Man With the Yellow Hat, are taking a skiing vacation this year and they picked Waterville Valley as their favorite place for family fun on the slopes. The festival will be held on Saturday, January 19, 2013 to join Waterville Valley in welcoming that mischievous little monkey.
Activities of the day will include a banana pancake breakfast at T-Bars Restaurant with the characters starting at 8:00 a.m., followed by a procession through the courtyard with George, The Man With the Yellow Hat and their new friend Bruce the Moose, Waterville Valley’s new mascot. Later, meet George at the Sunnyside Lodge for a photo opportunity and then take a few runs with him and all his friends down Valley Run. There will be activities through out the day at the mountain and at the Rey Center in Town Square. This is a fundraising event for the Margret and H.A. Rey Center and all proceeds from the event help fund their art, science and nature programs throughout the year. Waterville Valley Ski Resort and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt are sponsoring the event. Discounted lift tickets, breakfast tickets, and full packages are available for different age groups. For tickets and information please contact the Margret and H.A. Rey Center at (603) 236-3308 or visit TheReyCenter.org to purchase tickets online.
