Snowshoe Romp in Hubbard Park

by Caroline on January 27, 2016

ORS Snowshoe Romp 2016

We all know this winter hasn’t been perfect for every outdoor activity. But Friday night is shaping up to be the perfect night for a festive snowshoe in Hubbard Park: Join us Friday, January 29 for our annual Snowshoe Romp from 6-8pm at the Old Shelter! Snowshoe a lantern-lit trail through the park, then warm up by the fire with cocoa and ice cream.

Come with your own snowshoes or use some of our demo models to try different styles and brands, and bring your kids, your friends, and your headlamps – we’ll cover the rest. This event is FREE for all ages!

Hubbard Park is easily accessed via Winter and Parkway streets. Park at the bottom of the sledding hill or by the frog pond/skate rink and head on up! Check out the Hubbard Park map here.

Dress Like An Onion!

by Caroline on January 7, 2016

ORK Dress Like An Onion
We’re rather fond of anything that involves onions. But dressing like an onion isn’t just for fun – it’s the best way to keep your kids warm, dry, and comfortable this winter! Several thin layers are actually warmer than one thick layer, and regulating your child’s temperature is much easier (just add or remove a layer)!
Here at Onion River Kids, we have all the layers you need to stay safe and cozy for serious cold-weather play! Make sure you have every layer covered:
Layer 1: Base layers that wick sweat and dry quickly, like Merino wool tops and bottoms from SmartWool or Icebreaker and Capilene from Patagonia.
Layer 2: Mid-layers that insulate and breathe, like fleece zip-ups and pullovers from Columbia, Patagonia, and The North Face.
Layer 3: Outerwear that offers warmth and wind and water protection, like Patagonia down jackets (certified with RDS: Responsible Down Standard) and Puffball jackets (with Green Tech filling made from 90% recycled materials) – all treated with a water-resistant DWR finish, and 30% off right now!
Layer 4: Wool socks (just one pair!) – many of us grew up with feet shoved into too-tight boots thanks to two or three pairs of thick socks stuffed on our feet. One pair of insulating, breathable wool socks from Smartwool or Darn Tough will do the trick much better!
Layer 5: Hats, gloves, mitts, and scarves – keeping vulnerable skin on hands, necks, and faces protected is essential, and we have a huge selection from Kombi, Jupa, and Marmot. And all mittens and gloves are 30% off, too!
The next time you suit your little ones up for a day outside, think like an onion. Stop by for recommendations for every layer!
