Chase away the winter blues at Lorain County Metro Parks’ Winter Days Festival on January 15th from 11am to 4pm. Both high school culinary students and professional ice carvers will demonstrate their skills by transforming blocks of ice in masterpieces. Enjoy free sleigh rides, a sled dog team demonstration, an ice harvesting exhibit and video, Bacon House Museum tours, refreshments, and of course places to relax in our Carriage Barn by a roaring fire! Weather permitting, the sledding hill will also be open and snow sculptures are encouraged. You can also try out snowshoes at 2pm and 3pm. Preregistration is required for the snowshoe hikes. Call (440) 458-5121 to register. Bring the family to take advantage of this unique opportunity, get some exercise, and enjoy a winter weekend!
This Sunday’s PhotoPhun Challenge is “Ice”. Lisa, Ree and I have plans to be here this Saturday, taking pictures, everyone with the same photo ops. Sunday, we’ll post the pics, untagged (no names), and we’d like you to vote for which photo looks best. Better yet, come on out and join us! It’s a good time – there’s cookies and coffee and hot cocoa and fun things for the kids to do inside, with the fire blazing.
