There are two approaches you can take to get through winter: Stay indoors as much as possible or go outside and embrace it. I tend to take the first approach, but even I occasionally venture outdoors to look for an upside to the season.
Saturday in Vermilion there will be an opportunity to enjoy what winter has to offer. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Vermilion River Reservation, Lorain County Metro Parks is holding Winter Days. (The event is only one day despite its name.)
The lineup of activities includes meeting sled dogs, taking a horse-drawn sleigh ride and watching cooking and ice-carving demonstrations. Most of the activities are free, although donations will be accepted for some. Free s’mores will be first-come first-served and food and hot beverages will be for sale.

As I write this, the weather forecast is calling for a high of 40 degrees Saturday. That’s considerably warmer than Greater Cleveland has been since last weekend and might be enough to lure even the reluctant outside.
