VAIL, Colorado -Vail Mountain announced this week the details of Vail Holidaze, a new event geared toward families with children, slated to take place Dec. 18-25. Vail Holidaze will feature a weeklong schedule of family-friendly events and activities throughout Vail, both on the mountain and in town. Entertainment highlights include live concerts in Vail Village from two Grammy-nominated children’s bands – Brady Rymer and The Little Band That Could and Milkshake – as well as the “Winter Solstice on Ice” ice skating show at the Solaris Residences ice rink in Vail Village.

Grammy-nominated Brady Rymer and the Little Band That Could will perform live in Vail Village on Dec. 23. Rymer and his band are known for music with rock and roll heart that is enjoyed by both children and parents. Kids love the energy of his all-American roots/rock music and Rymer’s magnetic, good-times-guy charm, and his skill as a musician is something music-loving parents can appreciate.

Milkshake, also a Grammy-nominated children’s band, will take the stage in Vail Village on Dec. 22. Milkshake’s mission as a band is to create great rock music for kids. Milkshake has won over preschoolers with memorable songs that evoke influences from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Lennon-McCartney to The White Stripes, resulting in music that appeals to kids of all ages.

Winter Solstice on Ice will take place on the new ice rink at the Solaris Residences in Vail on Dec. 21. Winter Solstice on Ice will bring world-class ice skaters, like two-time and current World Silver Medalist Patrick Chan, to perform singles, pairs and group programs.

The event’s festivities will include other family-centric activities throughout the week like snowman decorating, kids’ glow stick parties at the base areas, Santa workshops, caroling and more.
