A “mountain” of snow, face paint, ball hockey and bubbles-a-plenty attracted many families and sledders to the second annual Snow Fest event in downtown Port Elgin February 17.

The snow hill, created in Coulter Parkette by Saugeen Shores Public Works staff on February 15 as they brought snow back into the downtown core, took on an Olympic theme with some slope enthusiasts calling it the Port Elgin bobsled track.

The five hour free event hosted by the Port Elgin BIA saw parents, kids and tots take to the hill with smiles and squeals, work on their slap shot skills and create bubbles that floated down Goderich Street creating a memorable scene.
