Mark you calendars and get ready for the 10th Anniversary of Snowman Mania in Wasaga Beach this Family Day long Weekend!
Events begin on Saturday February 7th with the Rotary Club Dance! There are an array of contests and activities taking place throughout the week leading up to the official opening ceremonies parade and festival on Friday, Feb13th from 7-9 in the Canadian Tire / Super Store lot.
Do you want to build a Snowman? Have a love for both snow and art? Why not combine the two by creating your very own snow man. Anyone can enter families, businesses, community groups and organizations… the best part is, you can build your creation as soon as the snow falls! There are three entry levels: Under 12 – Individual/Family – Business/Group and the categories this year are:
- Celebrity Snowman
- Snow Family
- Classic “Frosty” Snowman
We have great prizes available to be won and there will be three winners chosen in each category! Contest opens as soon as the snow falls and runs up until Friday, February 6th.
Once your snowman is built, take a photo of it and then go to 977thebeach.ca to upload your photo and fill out the entry form OR you can also contact Wendy Sherk at the Sun by phone at 705-429-1688 or firstname.lastname@example.org We can’t wait to see what you create!
And remember… you can play in the snow anytime at the Library too! Everyone is welcome to build a snowman outside the library – there is a ton of safe space for groups to build creations away from roads and parking lots.
