We live in Minnesnowta, why not make the most of it and have a little outdoor fun? Winter 4Play MSP has put together a bunch of really fun activities for your outdoor enjoyment, including: Art in the park with Northern Lights.MN’s ARTathlon, the Little Box Sauna, cross-country ski and snowshoe with REI, and ice fishing and winter bird watching with the National Park Service. Oh, and setting a record for Minnesota’s largest snowball fight. And also seeing if you and your dog are a match for skijoring with Midwest Skjorers. Aaand other winter activities plus hot chocolate and bon fires. It’s a packed day, and it’s a great way to try out some some cold weather Minnesotan fun that you might not otherwise get chance to.
