Two extremes beckon you to visit Irving this weekend with a double dose of fun. ZestFest is one hot and fiery show that offers sizzling exhibitors and spicy products from all around the country - and Irving's annual Frost Fest turns Cimarron Park into a snowy, wintry wonderland. Entertain the whole family and visit them both for a fun and festive weekend right here in the middle of the Metroplex.

If you're from south of the Red River, you probably don't get a chance to see much snow.  So we have brought it here to Irving. Come enjoy the cool side of winter weather — without the freezing rain and slick roads. Besides playing in the snow, you can ride a tube down a snow hill, get your picture taken, ride a train around the park, visit the petting zoo, enjoy crafts, puppets and so much more. Frost Fest will be the coolest place in Irving this weekend!
