ACT is gearing up for the second annual Winterfest celebration on Family Day and the week prior.

Local groups and clubs are running events February 3 to 9 for people to do snowshoeing, street hockey, curling, sledding, and free swim at the pool.

There will be activities for all age groups throughout the week, climaxing on the weekend and the Family Day holiday, said ACT co-lead Dawn Potvin.

“The goal is to have fun and promote healthy winter activity in Houston!”

“We are very excited to be able to host Winterfest again this year. The support last year from local organizations and volunteers was unparalleled and we look forward for this to be an annual event.

“Houston has a lot to offer in outdoor winter activities. We see the family day weekend as a time to showcase what Houston has,” Potvin said.

If anyone is interested in volunteering or hosting an event, they can contact Dawn Potvin at 250-845-1291.
