Kids and parents (and Fido, too!) reveled in cold-weather activities and romped in the snow at Central Park's Winter Jam 2013.

Winter Jam 2013 in Central Park

Last year's festival may have been canceled due to high temperatures, but this year's warm spell thankfully held off long enough for New Yorkers to enjoy Winter Jam 2013. On Saturday, January 26, the NYC Parks Department, Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) and Gore Mountain Ski Resort transformed Central Park into a winter wonderland, complete with a thick blanket of snow. During the annual winter-sports celebration, we spotted kids sledding, enjoying gratis snowboarding and cross-country skiing sessions, checking out a Quidditch match and playing with their pooches in the first-ever Doggie Snow Zone. Click through our slideshow to see if you can spot your bundled-up brood—and if you missed Winter Jam 2013, rest assured that there are still plenty more ways to enjoy Central Park this season.
