Winter family fun day goes Saturday
Teams have begun working on their snow sculptures near the old Huffman School as part of the “Snoasis” community event—and there’s no better time for people to come out and see what they’ve been up to than during a family fun day set for this Saturday.
Slated from noon-4 p.m., families are encouraged to drop by and not only check out the snow sculptures, but also skate on the east-end rink, try ice bowling, or get their faces painted.
While the weather is expected to be sunny and mild, people will be able to go into the East End Hall, where kids can colour and do similar activities, and everyone can vote for which sculpture should get the “Fan Favourite” award.
“I think there will be something for everyone,” Manty enthused.
“We really want to get as many people out to see the sculptures, and just go for a little skate,” she added.
“It should be pretty warm—a nice day to get outside and have some fun.”
The “Friends of the Museum” also will be on hand selling hotdogs and hot chocolate for a nominal fee as a fundraiser while new business “From the Grind Up” will be selling hot gourmet coffee.
A total of three teams are working on snow sculptures. Manty said if no team adopts the fourth snow cube at the site, the public will be welcome to try their hand at doing a little sculpting of their own on Saturday.
Who knows? Maybe it will encourage them to sign up and enter the contest next year.
To sign up to sculpt the fourth and final cube, drop by the museum, call Manty at 274-7891, or e-mail email@example.com
Teams were able to start working on sculptures this past Tuesday and must finish by this Sunday (March 10).
This year’s theme is “Our Community.”
There will be a prize awarded for “Judge’s Choice” and one for “Fan Favourite.”
