What To Do This Weekend - Kick off a Frosty Festival and Join in a Winterfest!

So, I've been laying low the last few days....flu's and storms will do that to ya. Did ya notice??

No....? What do you mean you have your own life????

Oh well.... well I am back now, and just in time to bug you with what we may be up to this weekend... weather permitting ;-)
  • First of all, today is the first day of Mount Pearl's 30th Annual Frosty Festival! Over the next 11 days, there will be several family-friendly events in that City, including an Extravaganza tonight at the Glacier, a free Family Swim tomorrow night at 7:05 at the Mt. Pearl Pool and a Frosty & Friends Breakfast at 9:00 AM Saturday at the Reid Community Centre. Also on Saturday, there is a Mario Kart Wii tournament for 7-14 yr olds, Frosty's 30th Birthday Party and Geocatching and Sliding events. Sunday brings more swimming, some skating, a Family Fun Day at MAX and The-Event-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named for ages 13-18 for muggles who dare enter the Reid Centre. For complete schedule and details of events, check out their site here. You'll find some winter fun for everyone!!!
  • This weekend also brings CBS' Winterfest, which runs from Saturday the 4th until February 19th. Join them for their Squash, Badminton and Hockey tournaments on Saturday, or head out to the Robert French Stadium on Sunday afternoon for a free family skate. Their schedule of events can be found here.
  • I've been meaning to mention a new program to the City: The Build-A-Brick Club for children ages 7+, where children get to use their creative abilities with Lego bricks. They are at the Admiralty Museum in Mount Pearl  4:30pm-6pm  or  7pm-8:30pm on Fridays (starting February 10th but I don't want to forget again!), and they do have a drop in rate! Keep it in mind if you are looking for a fun event for the kids any Friday night (Details on their site here). FYI: They are also offering birthday parties and I will be updating Birthday Party Central to include their information. 
  • Saturday also brings a Valentine Craft Fair at the Hotel Mount Pearl 10AM-4PM- pop in and buy some local treats for Valentines Day!
  • On Sunday, The theme for The Rooms Family Fun program 2-4 PM is Snow Goggles. Children will make their own pair of Inuit snow goggles and learn about some of the amazing technologies the Inuit developed to thrive in the harsh Arctic environment. 
  • Last but not least, the start of a new month brings a new theme to the Fluvarium's Kids Club. The theme for February is: Life on Ice. Children will learn how life around the Fluvarium changes in the icy winters, and discover how ice and snow actually helps to keep animals warm and safe in winter. Saturdays and Sundays at 1:30pm.
