State park celebrates with holiday open house

It’s mid-December and it’s really, really snowy in the mountains.

Which makes it feel like Christmas at Vega State Park. In celebration, the park is inviting you to a weekend of holiday open houses.

This Saturday and Sunday, enjoy Vega’s winter wonderland plus holiday crafts, door prizes, a “best winter hat” contest and 15 percent off in the gift shop.

Bring your sled and snowshoes and make it a day of outdoor fun, Christmas shopping and sipping hot chocolate.

Did I mention a parks pass makes a great stocking stuffer?
