The Third Annual Winona Forest Recreation Association (WFRA) WINTERFEST will be held Saturday, January 16, 2010 at the CCC Camp (Co. Rt. 90) in Lorraine starting at 9am.
This is a free event to raise awareness of local, family-friendly outdoor winter activities and to promote usage of Winona State Forest.
Winterfest includes a cross country ski race, Pennsylvania Dog Sled Club demonstrations and rides, snow sculptures, and more.
