Battle the winter blues with the second annual Crescent Park Skate Fest Sun., Feb. 16.
Residents are invited to enjoy activities at Crescent Drive Park such as hockey, tobogganing, snowshoeing, family skating, and cross-country skiing. To warm up there will be hot chocolate, coffee, and refreshments at the park’s picnic shelter which will be wind-proofed and heated for the occasion.
"We’re proud of our park," Crescent Park Rescue Chair Ron Mazur said in a release. "We want more people to take advantage of this important community resource. Skate Fest is an opportunity to fight the ‘February blues,’ get out and meet your neighbours while enjoying an afternoon of winter activity."
Skate Fest will start at 1 p.m. with greetings from Coun. Jenny Gerbasi (Fort Rouge- East Fort Garry), Fort Garry-Riverview MLA James Allum, and Winnipeg South Centre MP Joyce Bateman. Crescent Drive Park is located at the east end of Crescent Drive along the Red River in Fort Garry.
