As Whitewater gets ready for the upcoming season

Whitewater takes step back in time

Keeping with the old-timey theme of the Road Kings weekend, Whitewater Ski Resort is hosting a 1950s picnic

Keeping with the old-timey theme of the Road Kings weekend, Whitewater Ski Resort is hosting a 1950s picnic and pop-up shop in the parking lot of its Lake Street office this Saturday.

Whitewater’s Fresh Tracks Express food truck will be serving special root beer floats alongside their regular selection take-out fare. And 10 local vintage-inspired artisans will have booths set up to sell their crafts and clothing.

There will also be live painting by Avrell Fox and a photo booth set up throughout the event. At 2 p.m. the artists will also have a chance to showcase some of their items in a fashion show.

Whitewater marketing director Rebeckah Hornung said the pop-up shop will be like the one hosted in The Royal earlier this summer, except outside.

“We thought it was such a great concept and a really good way to support our local artisans,” Hornung said. “We have this great space here and this will be a fun way to utilize it.”

Artists participating in the event include Miss Kitten Vintage, Loo Loo, Cut Threads, Small Town Frocks, Marnie Christoffersen, KreetCo, Dear Pony, Prospero Pottery, Cute as Buttons Buttons, and Kitty Empire.

The picnic is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The Whitewater office will also be open during the event, so you can pick up your 2014 season pass while doing some shopping. Early bird pricing is available until September 30.
