Roosevelt Winterfest Set to Shatter Winter Blues

Snow arrived in satisfying amounts this month, paving the way for fun activities at this year’s Roosevelt Winterfest. On January 20th and 21st, community activities will be held throughout the City as a celebration to get friends and neighbors out and break up any winter blues. Sledding will be held at Constitution Park from 1 to 4pm while cross country skiing will take place at the Roosevelt City Golf Course from 9am to noon on Saturday, January 21st. Cross country skiing was actually the inspiration for the annual event. Avid skier and local dentist Dr. Doug Ogden wanted to see a winter activity in Roosevelt that got more people outside and newcomers trying cross country skiing. Since that first year, other events have been added to Roosevelt Winterfest. This year there will be a concert, art lessons, dancing, yoga, swimming, music lessons, and pizza and game night at USU. For more information on events, follow Roosevelt Winterfest on Facebook.
