  • Snowshoeing around Municipal Park will be available all day Saturday.
  • Piles of snow will be hauled in to the Municipal Park for the children to decorate and make snowmen on both Friday night and Saturday morning and afternoon.
  • The kid’s corner on Saturday will have a small construction project for each child that wishes to participate.
