Winterfest takes a break this year to re-organize

     Fans of Winterfest may be disappointed this year as the annual event has been put on hiatus.

     "We've decided that we're going to skip this year and maybe revamp it for next year," said Gretta Bauman of the Winterfest Committee.

     With the conservation officer in charge not around this year and the retirement of some of the attractions, the winter time celebration is going to take a break this year while the event gets reorganized.

     Bauman says that in spite of the canceled event, there are still fun winter activities to take part in.

     "We still encourage people to go out and enjoy the winter activities that the conservations guys have," said Bauman. "We're hoping to maybe set-up an afternoon of activities just to enjoy the winter."
