What To Do this Weekend... hint: 3 Winters Festivals Collide!

I received the nicest note on my Facebook page the other day. A lady actually thanked me for taking the time to write this blog & for posting event calendars! She even said that she and her son are enjoying winter rather than wishing for it to end, with the help of the page!!!! It was an amazing surprise - it made my day! I am glad it is useful to others :-)

This weekend is the BLAST weekend of winter when ALL the Winter festivals in the St. John's area collide! Snow Daze and Frosty Festivall are still on (woot!) and Snow & Ice in Paradise adds itself to the mix, so your possibilities are endless for the next 3 days! Here are some highlights you might want to weave in to your weekend:

Snow Daze: Enjoy NIGHTTIME Cross Country Skiing, Snowshoeing & Orienteering tonight at North Bank Lodge in Pippy Park  6 to 10 p.m.! And on Sunday, head over to the Friends of Victoria Park Open House, 1 to 5 p.m at the Pool house. There will be sliding on the upper hill, plus hot chocolate and lantern building demonstrations inside.

Frosty Festival: Pop into the Kenmount Park Community Centre tonight 7-9 for the Frosty Movie Night (call centre for movie details) and tomorrow, don't miss the Frosty Family Fun Day, Saturday from 10-2, behind MPI for a slew of outdoor winter games and fun.

Snow & Ice in Paradise:  If you dare, there is a pre-teen dance tonight, for ages 7-12, from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at the RPYCC (68 McNamara Drive). Sunday morning there is a Pancake Brunch (with live musical entertainment and bouncy castles), also at the RPYCC, 10:00am-1:00pm.

... but, THAT'S NOT ALL!

Family/Kids Programs continue at the Fluvarium (February theme is Animal Tracks, Sat & Sun at 1PM); and The Rooms (this week: Think Inside the Box, inspired by the Art Gallery’s exhibition Boxed In, children can build their own artwork inside a box. Sunday 2-4). Also, tomorrow (Saturday from 10-2:30), Kids in Safe Seats will host a car seat safety clinic at O'Neill Motors on Topsail Rd. You should visit their page to make an appointment.

Sadly, St. John's Kid posted this week that she is discontinuing her blog (but will remain active on Twitter and Facebook - whew!) - in light of this, I wanted to highlight some play date-type activities during the weekdays for parents of the younger crowd. There are playgroups for kids under 6 at Family and Child Care Connections on Pippy Place (Tuesdays and Thursdays weekly) and also at the NL Sports Plex on Crosbie Road on Tuesdays. This week, the GEO Centre also has Spring Science for Curious Kids (ages 3-5) on both Tuesday the 19 and Thursday the 21 as well. Check the calendar for details (and email me if you have anything to share :-)

Here is the short & sweet list of the upcoming week.... details as always in the calendar (remember to click on event for details!)
