If you've ever wanted to walk through a winter wonderland, you'll get your chance at RainDance Winterfest in Windsor this holiday season.

The Winterfest Grand Opening event will take place at 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 27 with the ceremonial lighting of the covered bridge next to Ted’s Sweetwater Grill. RainDance developer Martin Lind will preside in the bridge lighting ceremony. Colorado Eagles mascot Slapshot will also make an appearance from 5-6:30 p.m.

RainDance Winterfest attendees can also sign up to win $2,500 VISA gift cards — 10 will be given out throughout the Winterfest season. To enter, visit the model homes available for tour.

The inaugural event open to the public runs Wednesdays-Sundays from Nov. 27-Jan. 3 and is headquartered at Ted's Sweetwater Grill (2191 Covered Bridge Pkwy in Windsor). Find a full schedule of times and dates below.

The family-friendly outdoor event will feature a giant snowman and rocking horse, a skating rink, a life-size snow globe, curling lanes and many more attractions. A  collection of fire pits are spaced out to enjoy.

“We want to end a really tough year with some feel-good stuff and really amplify Christmas for families in Northern Colorado,” Lind said.

“I’ve always been big on Christmas and the meaning for the season.”

RainDance's trademark covered bridge and much of the award-winning master-planned community will be covered in holiday lights. RainDance Winterfest is also sponsoring Light It Up NoCo, contest rewarding $1,000 to the best holiday light design in Northern Colorado.
