No snow means 'slightly modified version' of Saline's Winterfest planned for Saturday
The weather hasn’t been very cooperative for Saline’s Winterfest and the defense of its title as the winner of last year's Snowman Building Championship of the Free World.
So, all four cities have canceled their snowman building contest as part of their winter activities.
At Monday night’s city council meeting, Trapp said, “I officially canceled the fireman’s hot chocolate and chili, the ice skating demo, the Snowman Building Championship of the Free World and the snowman decorating contest.”
However, the ice carvings will be at five locations downtown, and the hayrides will take place as long as people are interested in riding.
He still is awaiting a return phone call regarding the sled dog demonstration.
Many of the other activities still will take place. Click here for the activities.
Among event changes, bingo has been replaced by a euchre tournament with the help of the Saline Area Chamber of Commerce. This will take place at the Stone Arch Arts & Events Building from 10 a.m. to noon.
“We are still having a Winterfest, just somewhat modified from the original plan,” he said.
