Snow Fest Returning to Downtown Port Elgin

The famous snow mountain will be returning to Coulter Parkette on Family Day weekend.

The Port Elgin BIA will be hosting the fourth annual Snow Fest on Saturday, February 15th from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

S’mores, snow painting, road hockey and children’s activities are all planned, along with the snow mountain.

“We’re looking forward to seeing what Public Works has in mind for the mountain this year,” said BIA Coordinator Jordan MacKinnon. “They always come up with creative designs.” Those planning to ride down the snow mountain are reminded that personal sleds are not allowed. Crazy carpets will be provided.

Downtown businesses will be open and people are encouraged to visit local retailers while taking part in Snow Fest.

“We’re hoping folks will check out Snow Fest, ride the snow mountain and also take a walk around our beautiful downtown and visit our local businesses,” said MacKinnon.

The event is free of charge however, donations are appreciated, which will be put towards Snow Fest in 2021. Volunteers are critical to the success of any community event, and Snow Fest is no different. Those wishing to volunteer an hour of their time can register with the BIA via e-mail at portelginbia@gmail.com.
