The Eagle Town Park Ice Rink will officially open for the winter season Saturday, December 21, 2019.

Each winter the Eagle Ice Dads, a group of volunteers from town, build and maintain ice rinks right in front of the Centennial Park stage.  These rinks are free to use and open to the public from 9:00am to 9:30pm each day.  Andy Clark is the unofficial leader of the group, and his company Alliance Moving Systems helps foot the bill for some of the materials, storage, etc. “These Dads are amazing, they come out and work so hard to get the rink up and running and then volunteer to maintain it all winter long.” Said Andy, “They all love skating and they love to see the folks of Eagle coming out and enjoying the ice – especially the kids.” Thank you Ice Dads!

If you have any skating or hockey equipment you would like to donate, please drop it off at the Ice Skating Donation Locker at the rink. Folks who need skates are welcome to look through the locker and see if they can find what they need.

The Ice Rink will stay open as long as Mother Nature cooperates and we have good ice.

5th Annual WASSAILFEST!

What is Wassail (sounds like ‘wassle’)?

In Old English, the word meant ‘be you healthy’; it came to be known as hot mulled cider, traditionally drunk during wassailing, a medieval ritual intended to ensure a good cider apple harvest the following year.

 What do you do during Eagle Wassailfest?

Drink Wassail of course – to the ‘health’ of Eagle! From December 5-7, local Eagle businesses will serve up their own secret version of Wassail.

From December 5-7, participating Eagle businesses will serve up their own secret Wassail recipes. Wassailers are encouraged to taste at least 12 different Wassails and then vote for their favorite variety. All cards turned in that have been validated by at least 12 participating businesses will be included in a drawing for a Yeti Hopper Flip 12 Cooler Bag, donated by Comerford/State Farm Insurance. Cards can be turned in Thursday and Friday at Comerford Insurance Agency during business hours, or at Comerford’s tent on Broadway before 4:30pm on Saturday.

The business that receives the most participant votes is crowned Eagle’s WassailMeister and is awarded the WassailMeister Traveling Trophy.

NEW THIS YEAR!
On Thursday December 5th, WassailFest will run in conjunction with Noel Night on Broadway. Special reusable Silishot sampling cups will be available at various participating businesses on Broadway—while they last!!! Pick one up and use it throughout WassailFest to help reduce waste!
