Each week, we present the PI-365 report, which aims to show the reasons why you can go to Presque Isle all year long. Tonight, using the snow to turn the park into a winter playground.
While some people dread predicted snowfalls, others hope for those amounts and more. That’s true of the supporters of the fifth annual Presque Isle Snow Day set for January 26th.
Winter’s version of Discover Presque Isle it’s a one-day festival featuring all the things you can do at the park in the winter.
Jon DeMarco of the Presque Isle Partnership says, “Everything from horse-drawn wagon rides, family ice fishing… we have a snow day auction, outdoor cooking demonstrations, Joe Roots will be there, Smokey Bear will be there, Siberian Huskies doing a sled dog demonstration…”
Most events are free, but snow day buttons will be sold to benefit the park. Now, all that remains is a little help from Mother Nature to give visitors something for everyone.
“It’s really for all ages,” says DeMarco. “We really wanted to gear this event towards all the things there is to do at Presque Isle throughout the entire winter.”
The 5th Annual Presque Isle Snow Day is set for January 26th from 10am until 4pm. Most events will be around the Waterworks area of the park.
