Beat the Bitter

January 28February 3

Forget hibernating and embrace winter with the passion of Norsemen. North Liberty’s Beat the Bitter is back with a week full of activities to get you out of the house for some outdoor winter games and good cheer. Join us on the tundra of North Liberty January 28 through February 3, 2018, for fun on the bleakest days of the year.

On Friday, Feb. 2, gather in Penn Meadows Park for Fire & Ice Friday including fireworks, horse drawn carriage rides, and a community bonfire, and again on the morning and afternoon of Saturday, Feb. 3, for the annual Beat the Bitter Winter Games. Warm back up Saturday night by getting cozy with your friends and neighbors on the Snuggie Bar Crawl.

Many businesses in North Liberty have joined the fun too, and have prepared a full list of affiliated events to enjoy throughout the week.
