Yetis Return to Ogden, Utah for the 2nd Annual Wasatch Yeti Bash

Ogden, Utah (January 23, 2017) –­ The second annual Wasatch Yeti Bash presented by America First Credit Union will be held at the Ogden City Amphitheater on February 3. The Bash will take place from 4-8 p.m. and includes a Winter Arts Market, Community Bike Ride, Fat Bike Demos, Yeti Yoga, Live Entertainment, S’mores, Beer, Yeti Sightings, and costumed fun for all ages.

“Yetis have been spotted checking into the Hampton Inn & Suites, ordering beer at Roosters Brewing Co., riding fat bikes, doing yoga on the street, and admiring the new Joe McQueen mural by Nurture the Creative Mind” said Sydnie Furton, marketing and PR manager at Visit Ogden. “You never know what will spark their interest, but they seem to love it here in Ogden!”

The free event will begin at 4:00 p.m. with the opening of the Winter Arts Market. Off-beat artists and vendors will be hosting family-friendly interactive booths and exhibits. DJ Battleship will keep the vibes groovy, there will be live entertainment and yeti sightings throughout downtown Ogden. At 5:00 p.m. yetis and attendees can participate in a community bike ride and demo fat bikes. At 5:30 p.m. attendees have a chance to join yetis on the street during a winter yoga session with AndShesDopeToo.
 
In addition to the bash, the public might find yeti’s exploring art galleries during the First Friday Art Stroll and even a few taking over the bars and restaurants so keep your eye out for these snow-loving beasts. 

Fat bike racers, spectators and yetis can also look forward to the Sweaty Yeti Fat Bike Race and Festival presented by Borealis taking place on Saturday, February 4, 10-2pm at Wolf Creek Resort in Eden, Utah.
