Warm Cider and Cocoa stalls are set up all over town, as well as stalls serving up popcorn and nachos for light snacks. A large food pavilion has been set up in the park and serves everything from potato pancakes to Jiggly salad.
Everything is free but each station has a tip jar for the attendant pony and a donation jar for charity. Please give what you can.
Two stages have been set up on opposite sides of town to provide musical entertainment.
Stage A is classical acoustic music, while stage B is modern fare.
The schedule consists of mostly classic Hearth's Warming Day tunes for all to enjoy. Feel free to sing along to your favorite carol.
Foals and adult ponies alike are invited to come enjoy the rides and bouncy castle.
Unicorns are required to wear a horn blunt before entering the bouncy castle. Attractions include a merry-go-round, ferris wheel, foal's chug chug train and ice maze.
Win fabulous prizes at games of skill and luck!
Snowball Toss: Pitch a snowball at 3 ice blocks. Knock them down to win a prize.
Windigo Races: Pump your heart up! The bigger the heart, the faster the Windigo runs away from it - the first winter spirit to get safely back to its home wins.
Wreath Toss: Throw the wreath over the peg and win the prize.
Ice Break: Buck a block of ice, show the fillies how strong you are and win them a cute stuffed doll.
All games are free but they all have buckets for donations to local charities.
Ponyville Lake is open for skating, hockey and curling. There are supply sheds set up around the lake where skates, hockey sticks, pucks, helmets, curling stones and brooms can be found.
Scramble Bramble Hill is open for sledding and is now even more accessible thanks to improvements the Pegapals have made to it. Those who wish a bit more thrill might try their luck at Bonecrusher Hill, located just outside Sweet Apple Acres. Sled stations are available at both locations for ponies who do not have a sled.
There are rumors of a town wide snowball fight, but The Mayor has noted that she can not condone such actions and that she will be in bed at 5pm. (Buckets of ammo will be placed around town around this time.)
The annual burning of the destroyed Gazebo parts brings our celebration to a close. Join us for Hearth’s Warming Day songs and s'mores. The announcement of the winners of the snowpony and the snow sculpture contests will be announced.
