Family Fun Fest planned by Mount Forest BIA

MOUNT FOREST – A Winter Family Fun Fest on Saturday was among the first of many activities planned by the Mount Forest BIA this year.

The free event was well attended despite snow flurries and chilly temperatures. Activities included street hockey, a vendor market, live music, outdoor games, fire pits, a scavenger hunt, Touch a Truck, and homemade food by Magpies Bakery.

Kailyn Cudney, administrative coordinator for the Mount Forest BIA, was pleased with the turnout. “This is our first year ever for the event. We expect it to grow,” she said. Despite snow flurries and bone chilling temperatures, the ball hockey tournament was a popular activity. Six members of the Mount Forest Patriots hockey team were on hand to help organize the games for the Feb. 17 event.
