Fight the Frost

I’m not sure you can really fight the frost in Northeast Ohio. The best you can do is avoid it by staying inside until spring (or whenever it gets warm again).

Still, the Fight the Frost Festival is coming to the Cleveland Metroparks CanalWay Center on Saturday afternoon. From the description, this free event could rightly be called the Embrace the Frost Festival. But that non-alliterative name isn’t very catchy.

Between noon and 4 p.m. Saturday, visitors are invited to enjoy cookies and cocoa, make crafts, take 30-minute winter walks and learn about the power of water in the winter. Snowshoeing will be part of the fun, weather permitting.

The 1-mile walks will include information about birds and other wildlife that stay active throughout the winter. And indoors there will be carpet skating. In case you don’t know what that is, it’s demonstrated in the video below.

The festival should appeal to fans and foes of winter and those interested in nature. Honestly, they had me at cookies and cocoa.
