It's the biggest winter event of the season with fun activities and events for the whole family. Highlights include the Snowbar at Yodeler with music and fun, the Village Parade in Ellicottville on Saturday night, the costume parade on Sunday where the winner gets a season pass for next year, and everyone's favorite, the Dummy Downhill! This year we're celebrating Ellicottville's Bicentennial so get out your vintage ski clothing and enjoy the ride!
