Happy Friday Friends, Hubby and I are heading to the mountains for a weekend of fun.
Wednesday, February 6, 2013 - Sunday, February 10, 2013
Celebrate 100 Years of Winter Tradition in Steamboat SpringsBeginning as the organizing committee for the first Winter Carnival, the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club (SSWSC)
has maintained the Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival as a service to
the community since 1914, making it the oldest, continuous winter
carnival west of the Mississippi. Winter Carnival started as a way to
help residents cope with cabin fever during the height of the Colorado
winter season. The event continues to this day as a way to celebrate
winter; as a reason for neighbors to gather; and as an opportunity for
everyone to experience a piece of Ski Town USA® history and tradition.
We haven't been there for this before but have been told it is so much fun; there are lots of activities, contests and races. Snow is predicted on Saturday and Sunday, we are expecting it to be really cold. Hunter will be hanging with Lily at our daughter's home; don't think he'll miss us at all. I doubt I'll have any time to pop over and say hi, but know I'll be back(hopefully with lots of photos)on Monday or Tuesday.
