The City of Thornton’s annual winter festival is in full swing and after a chilly start Friday, the weather for the rest of the events looks to be much milder.

Santa Claus arrives safely last night and as always, the city has a full slate of events surrounding WinterFest at the Multipurpose Fields at 108th Ave and Colorado Blvd.  Residents can ice skate all day long and into the night, the ice carving demonstration is underway and of course Santa’s Village is open.

Tonight the Thornton Community Band will take to the stage at 7:00pm showcasing our community’s musical talent.  After the concert, Thornton will put on a fireworks show at 8:30pm, one of the few in Colorado during the winter and always the best.

Sunday features the wide variety of fun in Santa’s Village. Tomorrow night the Thornton Community Chorus will raise their voices in celebration of the season.

For the weather, today we’re heading for a high of 45 degrees with just a light wind.  It will dip to right around the freezing mark by 7:00pm when the band concert takes place and then down to 28 degrees for the fireworks at 8:30pm.

Tomorrow will be even warmer with plenty of sun above as we head for a high of 48 degrees with light winds.  When the chorus takes to the stage at 6:30 it will be around 32 degrees.

Check out some of the photos we took of WinterFest last night below – then head on down and join the fun!
