Skate the Lake

Skate the Lake December 31, 2017


Thank you to all our amazing and generous sponsors and community members who supported and attended Skate the Lake this year!!

The evening was a cold one, but it didn’t stop people from joining in the fun with skating, roasting marshmallows, playing in pick up hockey games all while listening to DJ Bo Jaxon and the band Sugar Ridge. What a great night with huge fireworks shows at 8:00 and again at midnight with noisemakers and cheers to bring in a new year!

Skate the Lake is DRIVE SMART’s primary fundraiser, providing much needed resources for our free transportation safety programs so we can continue our mission to keep our communities safe and to save lives by preventing traffic-related fatalities and injuries. Thank you for helping support our mission!

Do your part…DRIVE SMART!

New Year’s Eve Fireworks – Boston has nothing on Evergreen when it comes to fireworks!



Spend your New Year’s Eve on Evergreen Lake, one of CNN’s Top 10 most beautiful ice skating rinks.




As a resident of the Upper Bear Creek area, I would like to congratulate Drive Smart, EPRD, and the Jeffco Sheriff Dept. on having an outstandingly successful event at the Lakehouse on New Year’s Eve. … as spectacular as one could get. Record attendance, winter break, winter driving conditions, fireworks, New Year’s Eve drivers and celebrators, and a totally successful parking solution with the cooperation and coordination of the above mentioned parties. THANK YOU so much! What a lovely evening! And how pleasant it was for those of us whose main ingress and egress is driving by the Lakehouse. …DRIVE SMART has taught us all how these large events can also include a PARK SAFE solution.  –  S.S.
