Welcome to Winter Recess 2015!

 

Yes, Winter Recess is returning for 2015. The popular February promotion, originally created and managed by the Tompkins County Convention and Visitors Bureau, has been passed along to the Downtown Ithaca Alliance for this coming year. The Downtown Ithaca Alliance is excited to organize deals, events, and activities for teachers as way of saying thank you for all the hard-work and dedication.

 

Ithaca's Winter Recess celebrates public school teachers and school employees with entertainment, activities, family fun and discounts throughout the community.  During Winter Recess, Ithaca opens its doors to the pre-K-12 community, offering you a chance to relax, refresh and renew among friends in a city built on education. Best of all, Winter Recess registration is free! Thank you, teachers. Ithaca loves you!
