On Dec. 5, 2017 over 500 community residents, staff, patients and their families came to Winterfest, making the 2017 installment of this annual event the most popular ever. The promise of fun, festive activities and food drew people from West Park and the surrounding community in great numbers. A mixture of Winterfest staples and new activities made Winterfest 2017 a remarkable one. The introduction of the Polar Express train ride, presented by Campus Development, offered riders the opportunity to tour West Park’s campus in a fun, memorable way. Inside West Park’s Main Building, a cornucopia of free festive food and refreshments awaited attendees as they visited information booths on West Park’s Campus Development, the Foundation’s Capital Campaign and Rehab Plus, the Centre’s Wellness clinic. Live festive music and carolers, combined with facepainting and visits with Santa, rounded out the fun evening.
