In addition to skating, the seven-week event will feature great food, attractions, music, and a new festive holiday village. The quaint village will consist of seven Tuff Sheds configured in a semicircle and a 14-foot Christmas tree. The decorated sheds will house various local food vendors.

“Every year, we look for ways to elevate the holiday atmosphere that surrounds the ice rink, and we feel the village does just that” said Hanford Parks and Community Services Director Brad Albert. “Our goal is that our guests will have a great time, because there’s really something for everyone.”

Other new features at this year’s Hanford Winter Wonderland include a nine-hole minigolf course and three festive photo opportunities for lasting holiday memories.
