Bears, beards and boys take the holiday ice in Midtown

A holiday tradition continued as the Beards, Bears & Otters on Ice event took over Park Tavern in Midtown.

DJ Chris Griswold spearheaded the seventh annual event on Dec. 27. This year’s festivities benefited More to Love — a program to support children in Northern Thailand. 

The tradition launched in 2012 and has been a holiday staple ever since.
