A towering version of Olaf, the snowman in Disney’s “Frozen” franchise, sported his perma-smile and danced incessantly near the middle of Centennial Ice Arena’s rink in Highland Park.

Movie co-star Queen Elsa, meanwhile, left her throne in the corner of the arena’s lobby to greet and hug star-struck children for two hours on the afternoon of Jan. 11.

What also reigned at Winter Fest, a Park District of Highland Park annual event: fun.
