WinterFest gets residents out and enjoying the snow

Saturday's warmer temperatures made for a fun filled family snow day

TERRACE BAY – Terrace Bay’s WinterFest is in full swing, and residents were excited to be out and enjoying Saturday’s outdoor activities.  

Luke Bedard, the community development supervisor with the Township of Terrace Bay said that everything's looking a little brighter for the last days of the event as things warmed up following a chilly week. 

“It was cold this week,” he said. “But with the sun shining right now, we expect to see a lot of people down here, a lot of young families, and have a really good and busy day.” 

Bedard said that WinterFest is running according to plan and he’s glad to see all of the support the annual event received this year.  

“It’s been going really good, it's quite a bit of planning for the municipality, but a bigger part is the volunteers coming out and supporting,” he said. 

“The Curling Club, Home Hardware, French club seniors, it's a real community event and it takes a community to host a community event.” 

The past week has featured many family activities around Terrace Bay but Saturday was everyone’s chance to go out and have fun in the snow. 

“Down at the golf course today, we have inflatables for the kids, we have a hay ride style carriage, we have some disc golf with a sliding hill,” said Bedard. 

“We have Maple syrup up at the curling club today, there's a turkey shoot as well as it's National Curling Day, so there's some free curling demonstrations going on.” 

WinterFest wraps up on Sunday and Bedard and the organizing team would like to thank the community for joining the celebrations.
