A Flurry of Winter Fun Planned for the "Northwoods Blizzard Blast"

Winter fun for everyone is happening at the Northwoods Blizzard Blast on February 16, 2014.  Plan to head to the Conover Community Park and enjoy a full day of activities sure to cure your cabin fever.  All proceeds go to northwoods area Fire and EMS Departments.

Whether you opt to watch the madcap Recliner Races and Snow Shovel Races from the sidelines or sign up your own team, these events are bound to amuse as participants slip and slide around the ice track. Try your luck in Ice Bowling or play a hole of Ice Golf with a chance to win cash prizes. Challenge your creative side in the Snow Sculpting Contest, or join in the judging for “Crowd Favorite”.

Dreaming of a warm summer day at the ball park? Come out and watch teams battle each other at Snowshoe Baseball. The Northern Wisconsin Pond Curling Club will be on hand to host a demonstration round of Pond Curling. Those masters of the “stones and brooms” will rival the Olympians on the ice.

Join a brisk Cross Country Ski Fun Run winding through the pristine nature trails surrounding the park. And for those who prefer a more serene activity, grab a hot cocoa and a toasty S’mores and climb aboard for a Horse Drawn Trail Ride through the scenic northwoods.

Kids will enjoy many fun activities including snow castle building, downhill sledding, face painting and more, with prizes for one and all. A warming hut is on hand to chase the chill away.

Activities kick off at 10:00 AM and continue until dusk, capped off by a fireworks celebration. Cinnamon rolls, sandwiches, chili and beverages are available to warm your tummy all day long. Bring your friends and family and head to Conover to support the area Fire & EMS Departments.

Looking for the perfect last minute stocking stuffers? Pick up Northwoods Blizzard Blast coupon books for only $20 at participating northwoods businesses. Save up to $1200 on dining, lodging, services and more with over 50 coupons. Ready to make the rounds and enjoy all the Northwoods has to offer in winter? Grab a Snowflake Scrabble Scramble game card at participating businesses in Convover, Land O’Lakes and Phelps and take a tour around the area picking up your letter tiles, all for a chance to win big cash prizes.
