Harvard Common Spaces is pleased to announce an exciting lineup of winter activities planned for the Plaza. This year, it’s all about fun activities, food, and festivities — easy to do on a lunch break, in between classes, on your way home, or over the weekend.
Beginning Friday, Jan. 20, 2017 students, faculty, and staff can enjoy the newly designed ice lanes featuring curling, shuffleboard, and bowling. The Plaza will also be home to plenty of comfortable seatingaround toasty fire pits, favorite games like ping pong, foosball, cornhole, and many tasty treats courtesy of food trucks including Bon Me, Tenoch, Stoked, and Zinneken’s in addition to hot chocolate and s’mores from Harvard Student Agencies.
On Thursday, Jan. 26, join us between 4:30-6:30 p.m. for the Official Plaza WinterFest Kickoff Party featuring performances by the acapella groups The Harvard Callbacks and The Harvard LowKeys; Tunes by ‘The DJ Club’; warm fire pits along with complimentary s’mores and hot chocolate; and the Harvard Undergraduate Council will be giving out door prizes throughout the night. Don’t miss it!
Upcoming WinterFest special events include curling and shuffleboard lessons, hip hop cardio dancing, campfire storytelling, and a winter fun run! Please note, the ice rink will not be installed this year so that Common Spaces can experiment with different events, programs, and space designs.
