For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – Alpine Holiday 2019 will be held Nov. 8-9. In its 40th year, Alpine Holiday will feature a Friday fish fry, craft boutique, the “Ugly Sweater Run,” kids games, live performances, among other events.
Alpine Holiday started in 1979 as a “Ski Swap Fundraiser.” Columbus students created the event to help a favorite teacher whose job was potentially going to be eliminated. The event also featured a ski trip as a grand prize.
To celebrate the 40th Anniversary, the Ski Swap will return. The Columbus class of 1979 will also spend a portion of their 40th Class Reunion at Alpine Holiday on Friday.
Friday will also include the Friday Fish Fry, the craft boutique, the Ski Swap and a Ryan McIntyre performance and Dueling Piano show.
On Saturday, the day starts with the Ugly Sweater Run, a pancake breakfast, and performances by· Reis Martial Arts Academy, Main Street Conservatory of Dance, James David Magic, James David – Book Talk, Columbus Jazz Band and Choir, Columbus Student Lip Sync Battle, Governor Grizzly, and Doozey.
