Get Ready for the Annual Valparaiso Party in the Park Event

The community of Valparaiso is home to many exciting events, activities and things to do. The various neighborhoods in and around town host events throughout the entire calendar. Each year, one of the most sought-after events in town is the Valparaiso Party in the Park. It is a fun evening of ice-skating, eats and treats and a fun way to ring in the fall holiday season.

The Party in the Park is the kick-off of the 2017-2018 ice skating season in downtown Valparaiso. Throughout the fall and winter, families come to enjoy the ice skating rink for an afternoon or evening of fun. Whether you have never touched the ice or skate like a pro – opening night is a fun way to kick off the season.

What’s even better is, this year, all proceeds will benefit the Valpo Parks Foundation and Valpo Parks. Both of which are wonderful community sponsors.
