If you live around here, it’s a good idea to learn to do some things outdoors in the wintertime. An upcoming festival at Presque Isle State Park looks to embrace all things snowy and cold. Scott Bremner has a preview in this week’s PI 365.
You have two choices in an Erie are winter… stay inside or get out and have some fun. A chance to do the latter is coming up February Third when Presque Isle hosts it’s Fourth Annual Snow Day.
Jon Demarco of Presque Isle Partnership says, “there’s so many things to do in Erie in the wintertime that we want everybody to take advantage of it. The park does not close in the winter and we want everyone to know we’re open 365 days a year.”
More than a dozen activities are planned but that schedule could be affected by the whims of Mother Nature, including crafts, Erie Zoo animals, and sports-like cross-country skiing. The snow day will go on no matter what nature’s mood and Demarco says so will the fun. “It’s just a fun time to be out. We also have the waterworks playground right there, so we’re looking forward to a fun time on February Third.
Indeed, February Third is the big day for this year’s Snow Day. Many activities will be held around the rotary pavilion. There are fees for some activities but many things are free. For more information, check out discoverpi.com.
