All participants get a one day pool pass for the Holiday Valley summer pool complex. Plus music, mini-snowbar with beer specials, barbeque! Maximium of 50 pond skimmers.
And new in 2019...King of Mountain Dogs competition at noon! This event is for amateur dogs...the only qualification is that they get along with other dogs. Dogs will compete in an obstacle course, hunt for buried treasure and perform their best trick for the glory of being the very first Holiday Valley King of the Mountain Dogs! A raffle will be held to support our local animal shelter. Maximum of 15 dogs in the competition, register at the bottom of Yodeler starting at 11AM.
