Storming the mountain in Wentworth
WENTWORTH – It’s not an endurance event, or an orienteering event. It’s both.
Springhill’s Winter Carnival begins at the end of the month and brings the fun into February this year.
Officially kicking off Friday, Jan. 27, here will be a free after school skate in the afternoon and then on Saturday, Jan. 28, the Springhill Legion will be hosting a breakfast – $5 for anyone 12 and under, $8 for everyone else.
Saturday will also see the Chilli Willi Cook off return for a second year, running from noon until 2 p.m. and then at 6:30 p.m. will be a family movie night at the community centre.
For the adults, there will be a ‘Snowshoe and Brew’ hosted by the centre and Trider’s Craft Beer from 7p.m. to 10 p.m. Participants must be 19 or older, and must register in advance by calling 902-763-3025. Snowshoes will be available. Cost is $15.
For the not-so-adults, the teen centre is putting on a match of flashlight tag from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
On Sunday, Jan. 29, there will be an adults-only crib tournament in the afternoon and in the evening a games tournament will be held in the teen centre from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
