From February 18th to the 21st 2009, New Minas will be celebrating their annual Winter Carnival. The activities are part of the Take The Roof Off Winter initiative put on by Nova Scotia's Department of Recreation.
Each day has outdoor skating at Lockhard & Ryan Park, but the celebration is also broken into themes to ensure that there is something for everyone. The days are Kick Off Day, Seniors Day, Childrens and Fireworks Day, and Family Winter Active Fun Day. Saturday has the majority of the events scheduled including Tobogganing, Ball Hockey, and Snow Sculpting.
To view a full list of the events you can go to New Minas' website at www.newminas.com. With all the great things happening it will be a great way to get the family active during the winter months.
