Before you read this, please know the anticipated high temperature for Saturday is 13 degrees so you wont freeze your bum off going to this great event!
Get outside to celebrate and enjoy winter! REI experts, Fort Snelling State Park and local outdoor organizations will provide free activities that show how fun winter can be. Activities include: snowshoeing, cross country skiing, skijoring, ice fishing, ice sculpting, naturalist guided hikes, traditional ice harvesting, winter camping info, learn to build a quinzee (like an igloo made of snow), kids snow ranger activities and much more! Equipment is provided. We’ll have hot cocoa and a big bonfire too. Even if we have minimal or no snow we’ll still have lots of fun outdoor games and activities including adding geocaching, map and compass and roasting marshmallows to the event. Join us to celebrate winter in Minnesota! The event is free, but State Park vehicle permit fees still apply.
