Flurry Fest – Events all month long

 

Did you know that the outdoors can be some of the best medicine? Research shows that spending time outside cuts anxiety and stress and providing places and opportunities to get active can help people stay healthy. That’s why Bismarck Parks and Recreation District (BPRD) celebrates winter the entire month of February with Flurry Fest, a variety of free and low-cost activities for everyone.

Some outdoor highlights this year include Ski and Glow, S’mores Walk, Skate with the Bobcats and Treasure Hunt. New events for 2023 are the Ski Swap & Sale and the Dakota West Arts Council & Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health Glow Stick Dance Party.
