After a day on the slopes Tuesday, hit the Killington Tubing Park from 5-7 p.m. for a Get Down & Glow Tubing Party. The park will transform into an all-out laser light, glow sticking, glow-in-the-dark party. There will be a new entertainment group to light up the night with amazing visuals and special effects alongside a DJ. Dress warm, but bring glow sticks and dancing shoes because this outdoor party could get hot. If it’s still too cold, there will be space inside with food and beverages to warm up.
