Hold off on traveling upstate to partake in winter sport activities this weekend at Central Park's annual Winter Jam.

Unless you actually want like winter-winter (like snow), then maybe you should.

The annual festival, despite the lack of snow will have some chilly fun for all ages!

According to TimeOut NY, the festival is normally a winter wonderland filled with fresh snow provided from upstate ski destination Gore Mountain.

However the weather will be less frosty and more sunny on Saturday the 28th, so no snow this year. So yeah, that kinda sucks.

Last year, Winter Jam was also gonna be canceled because there was too much Elsa– we mean snow on the ground and blizzard warnings. But snow or not, there are still plenty of reasons to stop by.

The event starts at 11 a.m. this Saturday, January 28th and lasts until 3 p.m. The location is Central Park, at the Manhattan Bandshell Area (enter at 72nd Street).


The best part? Admission is free! You can pop in for some arctic golf, watch live ice sculpting, play flag football and shuffleboard,  and grab snacks and hot beverages at the Taste NY Winter Market/Warming Hut.

While you’re defrosting, you can also attend REI’s All Out 2017 Workshops on subjects such as "Winter Camping," "Wilderness Survival," and more. 


However, past events such as skiing, snowboarding, sledding and snowshoeing is canceled for this year. Sorry guys, no snow no dice. 

You gotta let it go (We had to).
