Northwoods 3rd Annual Sled Event, Fundraiser


3rd Annual Art Sled Rally

Traditional sledding, step aside. The Northwood Children’s Services 3rd Annual Art Sled Rally is going for a slightly different experience. Each year, folks construct imaginary, whimsical sleds made out of cardboard, foam, and other craft-project items and send them down a hill all to the sheer delight of the spectators. Past creations have included a dragon, fighter jet and even a replica DeLorean car with lights! It’s a wholesome and comical afternoon, and it’s not to be missed! The community is invited to show their creativity by entering an art sled – get creative and join the fun!

Date: February 21, 2015
