CXC Youth Festival Moves to Capitol Square Sprints

Sat, Dec  30, 2006 - By CXC Skiing

Central Cross Country Ski Association is changing plans for the CXC Youth Festival scheduled for Saturday December 30th  due to poor snow conditions and warm temperatures in Hayward. The festival will join the Capitol Square Sprints, Madison on Saturday, January 13,  1:00pm – 6:00pm.

Children will be able to enjoy a most unique ski course in the heart of downtown Madison and cross country ski around breathtaking State Capitol Building. There will be free hot chocolate to keep you warm, snowshoeing, and much more after skiing!

In one corner of the Capitol Square there will be outdoor ice sculptures and three outstanding museums tours. Dream, learn, and become inspired – there is so much to see and experience. Connect your children with the past in the Veterans Museum and explore history in the Historical Museum.  Museums will be open till 4.30 PM.

Take a break and come back outside to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to watch a magnificent fireworks display at 6:00pm.
