Frosty fun this Satur­day

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

It’s time to prove, once again, how ‘Cana­dian’ you are by bundling up with your hats, scarves and mitts and head­ing over to Beebe Me­mo­rial Park, this Satur­day, to spend the af­ter­noon in the great out­doors. Stanstead’s Plaisirs d’Hiver will run from noon to 4:00 and has fun for all ages, most of it free.

“There will be three in­flat­able games for the kids and an­i­ma­tors from the CAB Rediker will or­ga­nize games for tod­dlers. Two of the town’s mas­cots will be there: Sparky from the fire de­part­ment and Fron­tiero from the Jardin-des-Fron­tieres school. We have a small hill for slid­ing, un­less we get more snow, then it will be big­ger,” said Marise Trepanier of the Stanstead Recre­ation As­so­ci­a­tion, the group that is or­ga­niz­ing the event.

A pre-or­ga­nized broom­ball tour­na­ment will take place on the ice as well as a pick-up hockey game for all. Peo­ple can also take part in the Chuck-a-Puck fundraiser for the Recre­ation As­so­ci­a­tion. “Peo­ple buy a puck and then they will get the chance to throw the puck at a tar­get. Who­ever’s puck lands clos­est to the tar­get wins,” ex­plained Ms. Trepanier. And don’t for­get to bring your snow­shoes for the snow­shoe races that coun­cil­lor Wayne Stratton will be run­ning.

There will also be sugar on snow, a camp­fire with marsh­mal­lows, low-priced hot dogs, soup and hot bev­er­ages, and horse and pony rides with the Til­tons for a small fee. The fi­nal of the broom­ball tour­na­ment will be held at 3:30 while the Chuck-a-puck com­pe­ti­tion will take place at 4:00.
