Hello! Hope everyone is staying warm this winter. This new year we have many exciting things planned. One is our first Winter Gem Blast! This event is in partnership with Snow Trek, an event that allows families of all incomes to participate in free winter activities. There will be snowshoeing, skiing, sledding, skating, snowman building, crafts, face painting, and of course, new gems to be launched on the event day. The poster for the event is below, but here is a run down:

When: Sunday, February 5
Where: Harbour View Recreation Complex
At: 12-4pm

This is a great opportunity to try out winter activities you haven’t had the chance to before while collecting gems and points on our leader board. These gems will only be available for the event so this is a good chance to add to your score. Lets not forget about the prize. For every person who stops by our table at Harbour View with the Winnipeg Trails App downloaded on their phone, an entry for the prize draw will be rewarded. At 4pm the winner will be announced and the prize awarded!

We hope to see you there!
