Join us for Winter Wonderland

Peterson, Corinna

Picture this. You’re home with the kids on a snowy Saturday afternoon. They’re antsy from being cooped up and need to let out some energy. You’re tired too but still want to get a workout in, cook dinner, and spend some quality time with family. You remember seeing a flyer waiting in line at the bank, or did you hear it on the radio? Maybe TV? Something about a Winter Wonderland?

Maybe you don’t have a family or kids, but it’s still a snowy Saturday and you’re still bored. No matter what your situation is, this event is the place to be on Saturday, Feb. 22.

If you’re new to the area or maybe just not familiar with West End Winter Wonderland–it’s a family-friendly event that caters to all ages. Support your community, local businesses, and maybe even burn some calories while snowshoeing, skiing, or biking along the Wawonowin’s expertly groomed path.

As you travel down the path, make sure to stop by each booth for an activity or treat. Some will have pizza, some will have games, and some might even have MARGARITAS! Don’t have snowshoes, a bike, or cross-country skis? Don’t worry! Wilderness Sports will be on hand with free snowshoes for use during the event. Snowshoes will be given on a first-come, first-served basis so make sure to come early to take advantage of this event perk.
