Beaver Creek’s 2nd Annual Prezfest Returns. Beaver Creek Resort presents the 2nd annual PrezFest celebration this President’s Day week as part of the popular family program, Beaver Creek Loves Kids. PrezFest will take place from Feb. 15- 21, 2013 and will be a celebration of all things “Americana” and all that is wonderful about winter. New this year is the American Icon Ice Sculpture Exhibition, presented by IceSculpture.com. Watch as six world-class sculptors create masterpieces throughout the village – from a Harley Davidson motorcycle to Abraham Lincoln. Make your way to Avon on Sunday, Feb. 17to see these sculptors compete for icy glory at the Westin Riverfront Fire & Ice in Nottingham Park Competition, followed by the largest winter fireworks display in the state. Visit www.avon.org for event details.
The President for a Day contest, which proved exciting for participants last year, honors one child who is nominated by a parent on Facebook to serve the resort for a day. The President for a Day contest was wildly popular last year and all it takes is for a parent to nominate their child on Facebook. Parents just need to post a photo of their child – must be 14 years old or younger– and explain why they should be President of Beaver Creek for a day. The candidate with the most “likes” by 4 p.m. on February 17 wins. The President, his or her chosen Vice President and the “First Family” get to experience presidential treatment on and off the mountain for the day on Monday, Feb 18.
After enjoying the slopes, the fun continues in the village where, in proper President’s Day fashion, Beaver Creek will host historical characters on the Plaza nightly along with a parade at 4 p.m. Be sure not to miss the festivities on the ice rink including a figure skating show on Saturday at 6 p.m. and Disco Skate Night on Monday.
