Celebrate Family Day at Winterfest in Blackfalds on Monday, February 20, 2017

posted on Feb 6 2017

Celebrate Family Day with the Town of Blackfalds at Winterfest! Family oriented events will be taking place between 9 am and 5 pm around Town.

New to the lineup of events, Winterfest will begin with the Dual Ice Development Society (D.I.D.S) serving up a pancake breakfast by donation at the Community Hall (4810 Womacks Road). The Blackfalds firefighters will be hosting a fundraiser barbeque at noon at the Abbey Centre (4500 Womacks Road) and appreciate your donations to this extremely valuable volunteer service.

FREE Winterfest activities include horse drawn sleigh rides; an ice slide and snow maze; games and bouncy castles in the Servus Kidz Zone; and cheering on the brave Penguin Dippers making a splash for charity in the 10th Annual Penguin Dip – with trophies for best costume and funds raised!

Returning again this year, are the world renowned Ice On Whyte ice carvers, who will be carving some amazing ice sculptures, and hosting the Li’l Chippers learn to ice carve program. Juiced Audio's family skate party and the family bingo, both held at the Blackfalds Multi-Plex Arena (5302 Broadway Avenue), will conclude the fun-filled day.

Parking is very limited, so BOLT Transit will be providing FREE bus service around Town throughout the day – view the BOLT schedule for the day along with the full schedule of events at
