REI Urban Winter Wonderland
Sara D. Roosevelt Park (Chrystie St. & Stanton St., Manhattan)
REI is calling for snow at its first annual winter wonderland at Sara D. Roosevelt Park, only a few blocks away from its new SoHo store. New Yorkers will get a chance to receive information on where to enjoy the outdoors this winter, as well as test drive the latest ski and snowboard gear from many of its vendor partners. REI will offer warm beverages, outdoor product demos, live ice sculpting, and Burton Boot Pong. You can even make snow angels in an inflatable pool. Participants will receive a lift ticket detailing all the activities, which will be their key to in-store giveaways and discount redemption. Participating partners include Smartwool, Garmin, Columbia, Cascade Designs/MSR, Burton and more.
