Winter festival to bring fun and excitement to Rimbey

The cold, dreary month of February will be brightened somewhat with the fun and adventure of a winter festival.

The cold, dreary month of February will be brightened somewhat with the fun and adventure of a winter festival.

The festival, to be held Feb. 15, is a sure way to promote family fun, fresh air, exercise and socializing.

Director of Community Services Peter Stenstrom said the town is partnering with the Christian School to bring the best ever winter festival to the community.

For those who enjoy getting out on the slopes, a ski trip is planned to Medicine Lodge Ski Hill as part of the festival. The bus will leave from the Christian School at 9 a.m. and return at 4 p.m. Discounted rates of $35 for adults, $30 for youth and seniors and $25 for children under nine will be offered and include the lift ticket and bus ride.

At about 3 p.m. activities will get underway at the Christian School in town.

There will be supervised skating at the outdoor rink, tobogganing, creative snow painting and someone will be on hand to teach participants the basics of cross country skiing.

A barbecue will be set up and hotdogs and hot chocolate served.

Later, a game of shinny will be organized at the outdoor rink.

Stenstrom is looking forward to a great day with public participation.

“In the past we have had a winter festival at different stations throughout town. This year we decided to have everything at the Christian School. It is a great site and the skating rink and toboggan hill are already there.”

No registration is required for the winter festival. However, those wishing to go on the ski trip need to register at the recreation office.

Stenstrom said this year’s winter festival is driven by the recreation board as a way to promote healthy, family fun in the community.
